Four people have been arrested in connection with two high value shop thefts.

The car was linked to two high value shop thefts, worth more than £1,000 each, which had taken place in Suffolk and South Yorkshire.

Officers from Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Firearms Unit and Norfolk and Suffolk Police Dog Unit combined to make the arrest.

All four people travelling in the car were arrested.
