TWO MEN ARRESTED AFTER LOCAL THEFTS

After previous reports involving occupants of a blue Renault Master van with French licence plates stealing items from gardens and attempting to enter local properties,  police have arrested two men today.

The description of the van and the men have been widely shared on local social media sites in recent months and so when they struck again – in Fleet this time – they were recognised by local residents. They then left the area and travelled to Aldershot where they stopped in Burger King to have a break from their seemingly non-stop crime spree. While at the fast food outlet, it appears one of them was hit by a man and ended up with a bloodied face. The same man is also reported to have taken the keys to their van. Ironically the pair then went in to ask Burger King staff to call the police.

Meanwhile, another local resident recognised the van and blocked in the vehicle while also calling the police. Aimee Wright and her Mother Sue Nixon, who managed to take the video and pictures below, reported that the police arrested the men, who spoke no English and are thought to be Romanian, on suspicion of theft and trespassing. With the number of reports and crime numbers listed against them it’s hard to see how they will get out of that one.

The van was last seen being taken away on the back of a lorry, so fingers crossed, local residents won’t have to worry about further thefts from the infamous blue van duo.
