"Whenever we get reports, or we suspect, that a stolen vehicle is in the area, we will always work quickly to catch up with it and stop it so we can investigate.
"We understand the impact having a vehicle stolen can have on its owners, causing financial loss and leaving them without transport, so we are committed to our investigations where this might be the case.
