Gang get 24 years from ATM robberies

Yahoo has the story of a British gang who repeatedly robbed ATMs.

Wearing balaclavas to hide their faces, they smashed their way into supermarkets using axes and hammers before breaking into ATMs with saws normally used for cutting rail tracks.
The quartet also carried out burglaries in which high-performance cars, including a BMW M3 and Audi RS4, were targeted and used to escape the scene of their cash-point raids at speeds of up to 150mph.
 There is some information on how they were caught:
Investigators made a breakthrough when they spotted men acting suspiciously around an Audi RS4 at a lock-up in Harborne, on the outskirts of Birmingham.

The vehicle was followed to a garage where forensics experts lifted clues from its interior which identified the four men as suspects.
