Seven people have been arrested after there were a spate of car thefts in Shrewsbury, according to westmercia.police.uk.

The arrests were made in Shropshire, Lancashire and the West Midlands in connection with an ongoing investigation in to a car theft ring. The seven suspects are made up of six men and one female who are on suspicion conspiracy to steal motor vehicles.

Talking about the arrests, Superintendent Nav Malik from West Mercia police, told shropshirestar.com: "These low key arrests were made peacefully at around 7am this morning and we will now be interviewing the 7 suspects later in the day."

He continued: "We can confirm that these enquiries into conspiracy to steal motor vehicle offences have stemmed from the major, long-term drugs operation in Telford - Operation Sift - that we arrested more than 20 people in connection with back on September 11."
