TWO men from Surrey have been arrested on suspicion of going equipped for theft after being found by police at Bessemer Way in Great Yarmouth in the early hours of yesterday, Sunday 17 June.

Officers on patrol were suspicious of a vehicle seen in an industrial area just after 2am and it was stopped and searched.

Items for possible use in theft were found and the two men - a 32-year-old from Morden and a 30-year-old from Sutton in Surrey - were arrested.

Both were interviewed before being bailed to return to police on August 11 pending further enquiries.
