Four arrested on suspicion of going equipped for theft in New Mills

Posted on 9th February 2017

We have arrested four men on suspicion of going equipped for theft after they were stopped in New Mills earlier this week.

At around 1am on Monday, February 6, we were carrying out patrols on Buxton Road, New Mills as part of Operation Everman when we stopped a BMW.

During the stop check the men were found to be in possession of items that could be used to break into vehicles.

The men, Aged 23, 24, 24, and 25-years-old, were arrested on suspicion of going equipped for theft. They were questioned and have since been bailed pending further enquiries.

If you suspect suspicious activity in your community please call us on 101. Always dial 999 in an emergency.
