Two arrests made as part of Op Highway - Kenilworth

Two more arrests have been made as part of Op Highway, an initiative to tackle vehicle crime in Warwickshire.

Police were called to Kenilworth at around 10pm on Tuesday night (21 August) to a report of two males trying car door handles on Abbey End. The males then entered a Green Fiat 500 and stole a handbag and medicine from the vehicle.

Officers attended and two 14-year-old boys, both from Kenilworth, were arrested on suspicion of theft. They have both been released under investigation whilst enquiries are ongoing.

Inspector Paul Speddings, who is leading on Op Highway, said: "We are determined to tackling vehicle crime within the county and in the past week alone, 19 arrests have been made as part of the operation.

"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."
