THREE ARRESTS have been made following a spate of catalytic converter thefts across Bracknell and Wokingham.

The men, who are not residents of the Bracknell area, were arrested in relations to the thefts of both catalytic converters this morning in Priestwood.

Police said it was also in relation to tool thefts from vans in the area.

A spokesman for Thames Valley Police across Bracknell and Wokingham said: "Officers from Bracknell NHPT, assisted by ARV, have arrested three males this morning in the Priestwood area in relation to catalytic converter thefts.

"These arrests are also relevant to our ongoing investigation into tool thefts from vans. The males arrested are not from the Bracknell area.

"The arrests resulted from a call from a member of the public reporting suspicious activity around vehicles a short while earlier in Binfield. It is vitally important to report suspicious activity while it is happening.

"These crimes continue to be a priority for your local Neighbourhood Teams."
