Police have found a stolen BMW in a Stoke-on-Trent street – a month after it was stolen in a burglary 50 miles aways.
Officers acting on intelligence discovered the red car parked in a street in Shelton this afternoon (February 29).
It comes after the vehicle had been used as a getaway car following a burglary at an address up the M6 in Great Manchester last month.
Checks revealed the registration number had been switched for false plates.
It is not yet known whether any arrests have been made in connection with the incident.
A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: “Intelligence based patrols has led officers to this vehicle displaying false plates in the Shelton area of Stoke-on-Trent.
“The vehicle was stolen during a burglary from in the Greater Manchester Police area in January.
“Our investigation continues.”
