Stolen caravan tracked down by police drone

A caravan stolen in Cheshire has been tracked down more than 200 miles away in Kent by a police drone.

The vehicle was reported stolen from a farmyard in Cheshire on Saturday, February 3.

Officers received a tip-off a few days later that it was in Kent.

The stolen caravan was located on Saturday February 10 by Kent Police’s Rural Task Force with the help of a drone and two people found inside were arrested.

A Kent Police spokesman said: “A Constable deployed a drone to help view possible locations where it may be parked, and the caravan was successfully found in Darenth Wood Road, Dartford.

“Patrols attended the location and inside the vehicle they found a 23-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman.”

They were both arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods and theft.”

The suspects were bailed until May 8 while enquiries continue.
