Four suspects detained in Killamarsh have since been bailed

Four men have been arrested during an investigation into car thefts across two counties.

Derbyshire Police said the men were detained after a suspected stolen Volkswagen Golf was found in Rotherham Close, Killamarsh, on 22 January.

The car is believed to have been taken from an address in the Sothall area of Sheffield two days before, the force said.

A 28-year-old man from Killamarsh, a 25-year-old from Renishaw, and two men, aged 47 and 30, from Rotherham, South Yorkshire, were all arrested on suspicion of burglary and theft.

The men were also arrested on suspicion of acquisition, use or possession of criminal property.

They have all been bailed while inquiries continue.

An investigation is now ongoing into a number of other vehicles which have been stolen from the South Yorkshire area.
