A man has been jailed after he went on a burglary spree on Christmas Day.

Ethan Veiro, of Orsett Terrace in Woodford Green, was arrested by police after a car chase across east London and into Essex.

The 26-year-old had targeted a number of homes across Dagenham on Christmas Day morning 2022.

His burglary spree began in the early hours of the morning, when he stole a car from Wood Lane which was later found abandoned in Waterbeach Road.

Veiro went on to burgle various other homes across Dagenham, escaping with house keys, a bicycle, cash and a set of car keys, which he used to steal another car.

Met officers were able to locate the 26-year-old in a stolen car at midday in Redbridge, and a pursuit broke out when he failed to stop.

The chase began in Ilford, but Veiro eventually merged onto the M11 into Essex.

Dramatic footage released by police shows a police car ramming his car off the road and onto the motorway’s hard shoulder to stop it.

The vehicle is quickly surrounded by officers who immediately arrest Veiro.

The 26-year-old was ultimately jailed for six years for four counts of burglary and one count of robbery at Snaresbrook Crown Court on March 26.
