Pair held as car stolen in creeper theft
TWO men were arrested after police recovered a car stolen in a creeper-style burglary.
The vehicle was taken in the Oldpark area of north Belfast in the early hours of yesterday.
PSNI officers arrested a 25-year-old and a 24-year-old on suspicion of burglary and taking and driving away.
Chief Inspector Kelly Moore said: “Police making follow-up inquiries into an earlier incident, discovered that a Volkswagen Polo had been stolen from a property during a creeper-style burglary in the Oldpark area.
“The car was sighted just before 12 midday (on Friday) by police, but made off without stopping.
“A short time later, officers on patrol located the vehicle in the Mount Vernon area and arrested two males nearby.
“They are both currently helping with our inquiries.
“We have and will continue to take stolen cars off the streets, arrest offenders and bring them before the courts.”
