CCTV operators alerted officers on the ground after spotting the vehicle being driven in an erratic manner in Fenton in the early hours of yesterday morning (August 16).
Checks revealed the machine had been stolen.
A suspect was arrested and taken to the Northern Area Custody Facility at Etruria for questioning.

Turns out it was stolen. Culprit soon apprehended and given a LIFT to custody.”
It has not been revealed where in Fenton the incident took place.
