The public are being urged to report suspicious activity as the force continues to clamp down on metal theft.
On 9 January 2011 a member of the public rang 101 to report that a Citroen van was in a lay by on the A5 at long Buckby and people within it were acting suspiciously.
On 17 January 2012 another member of the public rang 101 to report a similar van and people acting suspiciously in Kettering.
Officers then put an alert on the Police National Computer in connection with the vehicle. On 9 February 2012 the vehicle believed to be the same vehicle was stopped on the M6 by West Midlands Police and the driver arrested.
Sergeant Mark McDonnell, who is leading the operation against metal theft, said: "We know from speaking to business groups and individuals that people sometimes think it is not worth phoning the police with details of suspicious incidents, wrongly believing that nothing will happen. This shows that we do take these calls seriously and do take action.
“We would urge anybody who sees vehicles in any suspicious circumstances such as unsolicited 'touting' for scrap, to call the police on 101 immediately.”
