A car-jacking gang that carried out a series of violent robberies across the West Midlands have been jailed.
On one occasion a man was threatened with a pistol while he tended his wife's grave, while on another they held up a heavily pregnant shop assistant at gunpoint during a robbery.
Three men were involved in serious offences between October and December 2018 and a fourth also played a part.
They were jailed at Birmingham Crown Court on Wednesday.
West Midlands Police said ringleader Paul Doyle, 41, along with Luke Mander and Joshua Barrett struck at least 46 times in 11 weeks.
It is estimated they stole cars worth a total of more than £500,000.
On one occasion a pregnant shop assistant was threatened with a handgun as the men stole alcohol, cigarettes and cash at a shop in Norwich Croft, Chelmsley Wood.
On another, a gun was pulled on a man at his wife's graveside at Streetly Crematorium. They failed to start his Nissan GTR and dropped a glove as they fled, which was forensically linked to Doyle....
I'm guessing Ghost Immobilizer to the rescue?

Yup indeed, A forum member and one of my customers who unfortunately was subjected to the horrific situation where the two ruthless thugs disgustingly followed him into the cemetery where his late wife was buried. They forced him to give them the keys after pulling out a loaded gun on him, he did and then did the perfect thing which is runaway from the scene knowing that his car was secured with the Ghost system and the car ain't going anywhere without the code, after trying several times they realised it wasn't going to happen they abandoned the car and drove off. Glad he wasn't hurt and his car which had sentimental value to him was still there in one piece. The scumbags got 24years and 18 years.. yes years not months years... They'll be flying cars by the time they come out.
