From West Mercia Police:
Police called to Rubery early today (Friday, 18 January) arrested a man on suspicion of vehicle interference after finding footprints in the snow.
Witnesses are sought and police want to hear from anyone in the area who has had property either stolen from their vehicles or broken into overnight.
Officers were called to Waseley Road at around 4.30am after a resident reported seeing a man walking from house to house trying to open porch doors and also trying to open car doors in the street.
Tracks were found in the snow and a man in his 20s was arrested in the area about an hour later. Officers also seized the keys to two vehicles as it is suspected those keys were stolen.
The man was taken to Redditch Police Station where he is currently helping officers with their inquiries.
PC John Coleman said: “As part of our investigation we are trying to establish if anything has been stolen from vehicles in that area overnight. I would urge anyone who has found their vehicle has been entered and property stolen to let us know as soon as possible.”
