During a routine patrol of Maidstone town centre last week, a PCSO became suspicious of a woman who was seen pushing a buggy, but is known to not have a child of that age.

Due to no shoplifting reports being received, and no offences being observed, there was insufficient grounds to challenge the suspect, but the information was passed on to the Maidstone Town Team.

This morning, a police constable, aware of the report submitted by the PCSO, noticed a woman with a pram in Week Street, in similar circumstances.

The officer approached the woman and noticed a large amount of items, from various stores, had been placed inside the pushchair.

A 31-year-old woman, from Maidstone, has been arrested on suspicion of theft and taken into custody while inquiries continue.
