Arrest made as part of Op Highway - Rugby

A further arrest has been made as part of Op Highway, an initiative to tackle vehicle crime in Warwickshire.

Police were called to a report of vehicle interference on a moped in North Street Car Park, Rugby, at around 1.30am on Friday morning (24 August).

Officers attended and a 15-year-old boy from Rugby was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage. He has 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 as we know the distress and inconvenience it can have on victims, especially if they are dependent on their car or van for their work or family commitments.

"I am pleased we are achieving such tangible results with Operation Highway, and hope it sends out a clear message that we will not tolerate vehicle crime in Warwickshire, and will devote the officers and resources necessary to tackle it."
