Three men have been arrested and a suspected stolen car found after a chance encounter with police at a fast-food restaurant. Two officers had entered a McDonald’s in Old Rufford Road, Ollerton, at around 1am this morning (Monday, April 4) when a group walked in smelling of cannabis.

After becoming suspicious of a 4 X 4 vehicle parked in the McDonald’s car park, police discovered it was showing incorrect number plates. A search of the vehicle uncovered power tools, gloves and its correct number plates.

Three men, aged 34, 32 and 32, were arrested on suspicion of theft and going equipped to steal.

Inspector Matthew Ward, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a great bit of work by officers who just happened to be in the restaurant as the suspects walked in.

“Following a brief conversation, the officers became suspicious of a vehicle parked outside and soon had these suspicions confirmed.

“Three men are now in custody and our investigations are continuing.”

They remain in police custody.
