Two Arrests After Suspicious Incident In Hereford
Two men were arrested in the early hours of this morning (14 September) after police were called to a suspicious incident in Hereford.
At just after 12.50am, a member of the public called West Mercia Police to report two men acting suspiciously by a vehicle at Addison Court on Edgar Street.
Police officers based in Hereford immediately responded to the call but the two men made off on foot just before officers arrived at the scene.
On arriving at the scene officers found a Ford Ranger vehicle with a catalytic converter partially cut off and a thorough search of the area immediately took place.
A short time later two men were arrested nearby on suspicion of interference with a motor vehicle.

"The help of the public is vital if we are to continue to tackle crime in the county and I would ask anyone who sees anything like this that concerns them to call us as soon as they can.
