Operation Haul - update- Stately Homes art raids!!

A further four men have been charged over the weekend in connection with Operation Haul.

Danny O’Loughlin, aged 30, Albert David Johnson, aged 31, Richard Steven Samuel Johnson, aged 31 and Michael Nicholls, aged 27, all from Cheltenham, will appear before Reading magistrates on Thursday (19/10) charged with conspiracy to steal ATM machines and conspiracy to commit burglary.

A further six people arrested last Tuesday (10/10) and being held in Gloucester have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

So, four of the Johnson clan have been charged with various offences!!!

Wonder if this will curb high value art thefts from Stately Homes and country houses?

Somehow, I don't think so and there is the small matter of recovering the high value artworks still outstanding.
