Police mounted a "fast-time operation" after a Range Rover was stolen from the driveway of a Sawbridgeworth house, which led to four people being arrested and the car being recovered.

After the keyless vehicle was taken overnight on Monday June 13, members of Hertfordshire police's operational support group were mobilised, along with the mobile Scorpion Team, the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Herts dog unit and the East Herts Local Crime Unit.

The vehicle was found and two men were arrested. A third was taken into custody after the dog unit found him hiding in a field. A woman was also arrested nearby in connection with the incident.

Two men, aged 18 and 19, both from Epping, and an 18-year-old woman from Waltham Abbey were arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle.

A 21-year-old man from Loughton was arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle and also of assaulting a police officer and possession of a bladed article.

Det Sgt Phil Collingridge, of the East Herts Local Crime Unit, said: “This operation is a great example of teams coming together to make fast-time arrests. As a result, the vehicle was recovered, undamaged, and returned to its owner. The investigation continues.”
