A 32-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of stealing a car, while officers recovered a stolen SUV in Morvant.

The officers observed one of the vehicles, a white Nisan Tiida, being driven by a 32-year-old man of 2nd Caledonia, Morvant.
The man was stopped and arrested after he failed to provide proof of ownership.
Meanwhile a short while later, the officers found a black Nissan X-Trail abandoned at Leotard Street, Morvant.
