The criminals put behind bars this week in Suffolk and north Essex will be locked up for a combined total of more than 10 years.
An Essex conman is currently serving jail time after he scammed customers out of an estimated £350,000 worth of family heirlooms.
Daniel Clelland, 44, has been jailed for five and a half years after he set himself up as an antiques dealer.
Clelland opened an antique shop called the Dolls House in Harwich and then another called Scrooge in Manningtree.
He befriended clients and earned the trust of his victims and then cheated them, Chelmsford Crown Court heard.
A conservative estimate of precious heirlooms and collections he defrauded them of was put at £350,000 – however the value could be as much as half a million pounds. Read the full story here.
