This is the dramatic moment a gang of fraudsters who struck in Cirencester were chased over rooftops by the police.
The four men, who have all since been jailed for conspiring to commit fraud by false representation, preyed on dozens of elderly victims and conned them out of hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Officers from Gloucestershire Constabulary’s Serious and Organised Crime Unit began investigating the Islington gang after discovering a victim in Cirencester.
A warrant was executed at a property in Theberton Street in April last year. When members of the gang tried to escape through an upstairs window, officers gave chase across the rooftops, eventually catching and arresting them.
Mohammed Rahman, 27, of Leirum Street, Shoriful Islam, 24, of Highbury New Park, Muhammed Hussain, 24, of Collier Street and Muhammed Maarjan, 23, of James Morgan Mews, were jailed on Friday for a total of 20 years and eight months.
