Leamington Editorial 24th Aug, 2018   0

TEENAGERS have been arrested after a handbag and medication were stolen from a car in Kenilworth.

Police officers were alerted that two people were trying car door handles on Abbey End at around 10pm on Tuesday (August 21).

A handbag and medicine were then stolen from a Fiat 500.

Two 14-year-old boys have been arrested on suspicion of theft. They have been released under investigation while enquiries are ongoing.

Police say the arrests are part of Op Highway – an initiative to tackle vehicle crime in Warwickshire. It has seen 19 arrests in the past week alone.

Insp Paul Speddings said: “We are determined to tackling vehicle crime within the county.

“I’d ask the public to stay vigilant and to keep helping us to prevent these offences by ensuring vehicles are locked and valuables are not on display.

“We know how distressing it can be to be a victim of vehicle crime, which is why we are doing everything within our power to reduce offences and ensure those responsible are brought to justice.”
