A 36-year-old Ashford man has been arrested as part of a Kent Police crackdown on household burglary and vehicle theft.

The man was arrested at a business park in Ashford on suspicion of handling stolen goods after a significant quantity of Landrover Defender parts, from three separate vehicles, were found at a business park in Ashford.

The vehicle parts included chassis, gear boxes and door panels. A vehicle examiner attended the location and identified parts belonging to vehicles that had all been reported stolen in January this year.

The man is currently on police bail until March 21.

His arrest is one of the latest in Operation Castle, a three-month operation which started last week.

In the first week of the operation police recorded 69 arrests across Kent.
