The suspicious van was parked in a layby in Aborfield yesterday evening (3/8).

Team 5 also responded to an unrelated report of suspicious people in Crowthorne and stopped a ram-raid in the local area.

They then recovered the items that would have otherwise been stolen.

Bracknell residents congratulated both TVP and the members of the public for their ‘eagle eye’ reports in the community.
