A 19 year-old man is due to appear at Birmingham Magistrates Court today in connection with the theft of a National Crime Agency vehicle

The unmarked BMW which is fitted with sirens and blue lights was stolen from outside an address in Shirley following a burglary on Sunday (7th May).

West Midlands Police issued an alert on Monday (8th May) after an unmarked BMW was used by men posing as police officers to flag down a motorist in Small Heath.

Fortunately she suspected the men were bogus PCs and refused to get into the NCA vehicle.

Shop worker Kadim Shah, from Lewis Road in Stirchley, was later arrested by detectives on suspicion of involvement in the car theft.

Last night (10th May), Shah was charged with taking a vehicle without consent and driving without insurance or a licence.

Enquiries are on-going to locate a second man suspected of being involved.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police on 101, alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or visit www.crimestoppers-uk.org
