Three men have been arrested for two incidents in Faversham.

Stolen items believed to have been snatched from homes in Faversham have been seized in the crackdown by Kent Police's Rural Partnership Team.

In the first incident, two men, 36 and 24, both from Faversham, were arrested on suspicion of burglary and have been bailed until May 31.

Police officer's Preston Frost and Darren Reed from the Rural Partnership Team were on patrol on Friday when they stopped a man who they believed was acting suspiciously in Napleton Road.

A second man was later arrested and officers seized a number of items they suspect were taken during a burglary in Newton Road on Thursday, March 27.

The investigation is ongoing.

A white van was also seized from the address and the trailer has now been recovered.

The man was arrested shortly before 2pm yesterday for suspicion of theft, failing to stop at the scene of a collision and possession of herbal cannabis.
