Arrests Made- Thefts from Motor Vehicles

In the early hours of Wednesday 18 January 2023 Police Dog Kasper and his Handler spotted a Citroën motor vehicle on the forecourt of the Shell Petrol station Birmingham Road Hatton. The vehicle was a clone on false plates and had been stolen from Coventry in a Burglary in October 2022. Additional Warwickshire Police units attended the petrol station and boxed the vehicle in preventing the potential for a dangerous pursuit.
