Raymond Gordon, 30, of Kendrick Road, was sentenced to 42 months. James Watters, 33, of Gossey Lane, Jermaine Hanno, 33, of Geranium Grove, and Stephen Little, 28, of Old Farm Road, were sentenced to 28 months. All had previously pleaded guilty to attempted burglary.

The four men, who were wearing balaclavas, arrived at the scene in a stolen Audi A6. They were arrested by armed officers as they attempted to break into the machine using petrol powered cutting tools.

The investigation was led by the West Midlands Regional Organised Crime Unit.

Detective Superintendent Steve Quinn from Warwickshire Police said: "As with many people who commit these types of offences, Gordon, Watters, Hanno and Little were driven by greed. These weren't petty criminals, they were a serious organised crime group and we're pleased that they are now behind bars.

"Their attempt may have been unsuccessful but it in the process they inflicted fear on the local community, many of whom will have awoken to the site of armed police in their streets.

"I welcome the outcome in court and would like to reassure people that we will continue to work hard to make Warwickshire a hostile place for serious organised crime groups who think it is acceptable to come here and cause fear."
