The thefts occurred across Derby and saw 23 cars stolen – with 18 managing to be recovered and returned to their owners.
Officers from the SALCU road crime team, which targets serious and prolific crimes on the county’s roads, led the investigation into the series of thefts.
After completing eight warrants and searching 25 premises last week (6 – 10 June), officers have now charged five men in connection with the incidents.

Conspiracy to commit theft of motor vehicles
Two counts of burglary
Three counts of theft from a motor vehicle
Handling stolen goods
Two counts of driving while disqualified
Three other men – Jamie Parker, 36, of no fixed abode, Scott Alfrey, 35, of London Road, Derby, and Raphael Stone, 25, of no-fixed abode – were all arrested, charged, and remanded after allegedly conspiring to commit the theft of motor vehicles.
The fifth man, Christopher Naylor, 37, of no fixed abode, was arrested and charged with allegedly being involved in a conspiracy to commit the theft of motor vehicles – as well as possession with intent to supply cocaine and two counts of dangerous driving.
All four men were remanded to prison.
Four other people, a man, a teenage boy and two women all from the Derby area, were also arrested and have been released on police bail as further enquires are made.
