The West Midlands’ most prolific criminal has 338 convictions
Ten most prolific offenders have committed more than 2,500 crimes between them
The West Midlands’ most prolific offender has a staggering 338 convictions on their record, we can reveal. You’ve probably heard the term career criminal but this group of crooks have taken it to the extreme.
They’re so familiar with cops and magistrates they’re probably on first name terms – that’s how often they’ve been in and out of the nick over the years. The region’s top 10 most prolific criminals have amassed a whopping 2,539 convictions between them, showing how much of a drain on resources they’ve been as they committed crime after crime and never learned their lesson.
To put this level of offending into perspective, if those 2,539 crimes were carried out on separate days it would work out to seven years of continuous offending.
