Arrests after vehicles seized in early-morning police raids

THREE people were arrested after officers seized thousands of pounds worth of suspected stolen vehicles during warrants last week (October 10).

Wiltshire Police executed two warrants, at addresses in Winterslow and Amesbury, following community intelligence and information regarding suspected stolen vehicles at the properties.

During the warrants, five vehicles were recovered, including a Range Rover Sport and a BMW.

Two men aged 27 and one man aged 56 have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to steal motor vehicles and all three remain in Melksham custody for questioning.

Inspector Tina Osborn said: “These two early morning warrants were executed by neighbourhood officers following information received from the public.

“We acted quickly after receiving this information and during this significant operation, which saw us working alongside specialist ops and partner agencies including Datatag, have recovered five high value vehicles, and made three arrests which is excellent work.

“Hopefully this provides reassurance to the victims that we will work tirelessly to identify those responsible and locate the vehicles stolen.”

CID will progress further enquiries in relation to the thefts, she added.
