A teenager from London has been arrested in Tonbridge on suspicion of going equipped for theft.

Police were called to Crabapple Road at 3pm this afternoon after residents complained that a youth was acting suspiciously and looking in parked cars and "domestic storage arears."

Officers say when they arrived at the scene a 15-year-old boy rode off on a bicycle.
