T’was the early hours of Saturday 9th April 2011, a warm spring evening where the moon shone across Canley, the wind gently whispered through the trees and in the distance one could hear the echoes of police enforcement as the Special Constabulary did their best!Â
Coventry Specials Constables Â arrested a well know thief in the early hours of Saturday 9th April on Donegal Close Canley.
The officers were on proactive patrol when they sawÂ the offenderÂ sitting on a moped, clearly feeling an opportunity the officers moved in.Â
The offenderÂ panicked, he dumped the bike and ran from the scene in a feeble attempt to extricate himself from what was to be his inevitable capture.
The officers leapt from their vehicle and took chase over nearby grass land. Showing their excellent levels of fitness the offender was clearly no match and was detained, handcuffed and returned to the police vehicle.
Further diligent checks showed the vehicle to be stolen. To add to thisÂ the offenderÂ was also found to be under the influence of alcohol and was dealt with that as well.
The moon may have been shining, the wind may have been whispering and distant owls may have been gently hooting but the cold facts of the matter are that thatÂ the theft of motor vehicle was detected, the owner got it back quickley and Â excess alcohol and document offences charged.
An outstanding example of work from the Special Constabulary.
