A 37-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted theft of a motor vehicle and has since been released under investigation.

Sergeant Chris Acourt said: “This is another positive step in the fight against car thefts. The introduction of keyless technology has created a new window for criminals to utilise.

“By conducting this warrant we have not only recovered a stolen vehicle but potentially cut out a source for future thefts.”
