Leeds mass car cloning gang finally jailed


MEMBERS of a car cloning gang have been jailed over a nationwide conspiracy worth £1.5m in which vehicles were stolen across the UK before being taken to Leeds. A court heard the plot involved the illegal sale of 188 stolen vehicles during the highly sophisticated operation lasting four years.



The two men in charge of the plot - Joseph Redmond and Luke Campbell - posed as motor traders in order to obtain training in how to use specialist equipment used to steal and clone vehicles. Campbell also assumed the identity of a dead child in order to trick unsuspecting car buyers at his business premises in Armley.
