- Daventry News - Daventry boys help police arrest theft suspects.
When Daventry police were called to deal with men forcing their way into a builder’s yard they thought they were too late when all they found was an abandoned van. However, bystanders were on hand to give them directions to chase the culprits.
Two local boys even lent the officers their own bikes so that the police could catch up with the suspects. As a result, two men were arrested and charged with theft of a dumper truck which they’d allegedly loaded into the back of a van on Carisbrooke Way.
Sgt Matt Bailey said: “The public support during this incident was fantastic and led directly to the capture, arrest and charging of these two individuals.
“I would like to thank all of them for their help, but especially the two boys who lent me their bicycles.
“It was great to know how much they wanted us to succeed in catching up with the suspects.”
Sgt Bailey has invited the two boys to spend a day with the force’s response team as a gesture of appreciation for their public-spiritedness.
