Update on suspect arrested over the weekend

Alert message sent 13/02/2019 11:16:00

Information sent on behalf of Northamptonshire Police

The suspect attended court on the 11th of February and has been further remanded in custody until his next appearance.
Since the 9th of February I am happy to report that we have had no further theft from motor vehicles across the town. However we still urge residents to follow the below advice:
  • Remove everything from your car; don't even leave a jacket where it can be seen.
  • Closing the sunroof along with the windows when you leave.
  • Not storing things in the boot; take them with you.
  • Storing car ownership information in your home, not your car.
  • Having a routine to ensure you always take the keys out of the ignition.
  • Taking removable stereos and sat nav equipment with you.
  • In addition, using secure (theft resistant) number plates can make your plates less attractive to thieves.

Yesterday (9th of February) officers from Northamptonshire Police assisted British Transport Police officers with the arrest of a male after he was located in a car park at Wellingborough railway station in possession of a screwdriver.  The location the male was stopped has suffered a recent increase in theft from motor vehicles.  The male was arrested and is currently in custody whilst the investigation continues.
