Alert message sent 03/11/2017 14:32:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Police & Crime Commissioner

Four men have been arrested on suspicion of stealing a lorry in an operation which involved three East Midlands forces.

Leicestershire Police contacted us at 5am today (Thursday, November 2) as their officers had seen a lorry on the M1 that they believed to have been stolen.

It was heading towards Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire and so both forces deployed officers to follow it and bring it safely to a stop.

The lorry stopped just off junction 30 and four men ran from it. They were followed by officers and arrested.

The men, aged 23 and 31 and from Leeds, 45 and from Doncaster and 28 and from Pontefract, remain in custody with Derbyshire police.

Officers believe the lorry may have been involved in thefts from lorries across the region but inquiries are continuing.
