TWO men have been arrested in the Vale of Evesham linked to stolen vehicles and building equipment.

Evesham safer neighbourhood team's police officers joined the Rural Crime taskforce to assist with a warrant at a location near Cleeve Prior yesterday (Thursday, October 26).

Officers secured the site and arrested two men linked to offences that are being investigated.

Inspector Dave Wise, safer neighbourhood Inspector for Malvern Hills and Wychavon, said: "As a result of shared intelligence between our forces the following were located and recovered.

"Two stolen caravans, one stolen cement mixer, two stolen trailers, a stolen Land Rover Discovery and a car believed to be used in crime.

"One of the trailers had been stolen less than 12 hours before our search and has been returned by the Warwickshire Rural Crime Team.

"Partnership working with nearby force areas is key to our success as well as the great information we receive from our communities."
