PCSOs have recovered a car thought to have been stolen in a burglary after it was involved in a crash in Barnsley.

PCSOs attended the collision in St Barbara’s Road, Darfield, after the car - a blue Citroen C3 - collided with a wall.

A man driving the car is believed to have ran from the area and got into another car, a silver Citroen C4, which was later found nearby.

After completing checks on the car, PCSOs discovered that the car was being driven on what are thought to be cloned plates and had been stolen from a house in Dryden Road, West Melton the day before (November 24).

It was then seized by the officers.

Then, the following evening (Saturday November 26), at about 7.30pm, PCSOs saw a blue Peugeot 206 driving along Woodhall Road.

The car is thought to have been exceeding the speed limit.

PCSOs found the car abandoned close to Verona Rise and it was seized under the Police Reform Act.

Anyone with information about these incidents should call 101 quoting incident number 1001 of 26 November 2016.
