Officers in Selby have made another arrest in connection with a spate of thefts from cars which have been taking place in the Abbots estate area.
A 42-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the fraudulent use of bank cards, which were linked to the registered keepers of vehicles.
He was also arrested and charged with a breach of court bail and appeared at Leeds Magistrates Court where he was remanded in custody in relation to other offences.
Enquiries are continuing in regard to the fraudulent use of the bank cards and further updates will be issued regarding any charges which may come about due to this investigation.
Sergeant Jack Waterton of the Selby Neighbourhood Policing Team said:
“I fully understand the upset and frustration this spate of car thefts has caused to the local community. Please be reassured that are working hard to thoroughly investigate these matters and gather evidence to hold those responsible accountable.
“We will keep the local community informed of any developments.
“I’d also like to ask anyone who has doorbell, CCTV footage or car dashcam footage of any suspicious activity which they believe is connected to these incidents, to please make contact with the investigation, and not share the footage on social media.
“I realise people’s first thought is to share the footage to identify a suspect. However, this action may actually jeopardise any legal proceedings.
“Instead, please contact our Force Control Room on 101 quoting reference 12230196103, so that it can be taken into consideration by the investigation and presented to the courts in the correct manner.”
