Police recover stolen van and arrest suspect at the scene

Officers from Leicestershire Roads Policing Unit were delighted when they finally recovered a stolen Transit van on Sunday night, after searching for it for several days. They were even more delighted when – as they were waiting for a vehicle recovery truck to arrive in order to tow it to the police pound – the alleged van thief returned to the van and was promptly arrested. A pleased police officer tweeted: “Last couple of days have been Q for #Ashift, but fear not we have been working tirelessly in the background.

This stolen Transit was nicked a few days ago and has been located and recovered in @LPSouthLeics.” And they later added another tweet: “Area update for this one… the suspect returned whilst we were waiting for recovery. He’s been arrested and is currently residing in one the cells at the custody block.”
