TWO men have been arrested after a sharp-eyed resident called the police.

The person phoned in after they spotted two men trying car door handles in Villiers Way in Wash Common at 3.45am on Monday, September 28.

Officers arrested the men, aged 34 and 24, on suspicion of theft from motor vehicles.

They also seized items which they believe were stolen from the same area.  

The men, both from Newbury, have been bailed until Tuesday, October 13.

PC Colin Fearn, from Local CID in Newbury, would like to hear from anyone in the Wash Common area who has had their vehicle broken into and has not yet reported it to police.

He said:”We have traced the owners of some of the items we seized but there are still some outstanding. Anyone who has had their vehicle broken into should contact Thames Valley Police on 101, quoting URN 85 of 28/9."

Anyone with information about the break-ins should call 101.
