Two arrested for theft from vehicle in Portsmouth

Alert message sent 13/09/2021 12:25:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

We have made two arrests following a theft from a van on Truro Road, Portsmouth.

The arrests took place in the early hours of this morning (Monday 13 September) after police were called to reports of three people attempting to gain access to cars on Stubbington Avenue.

Officers attended and located two boys each in possession of bank cards that did not belong to them.

Subsequent enquiries revealed that the cards had been stolen from a van parked on Truro Road and later used.

A 16-year-old boy from Portsmouth has been arrested on suspicion of vehicle interference and two counts of theft from a motor vehicle.

A 17-year-old boy from Portsmouth has been arrested on suspicion of vehicle interference and one count of theft from a motor vehicle.

They both remain in police custody at this time.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind drivers to be vigilant, report anyone acting suspiciously and double check that your vehicles are locked at all times.

We would also urge people to remove any valuables from their cars and vans.

It is also a good idea to log any serial numbers or distinctive features for any items you have, so that if you have to report a theft, you can give us these details. We can then try to match them to any items we may later seize and will help us reunite any stolen items recovered to you quicker.
