A man has been charged in connection with a spate of thefts from vehicles in Wisbech.
Kevin Holmes, 37, of Chapnall Close in Wisbech, has been charged with fraud by false representation, namely using a bank card belonging to another, and theft from a shop.
Police say that they worked over 17 hours to make sure that Holmes was remanded overnight to appear in court this morning (September 19).
Inspector Ian Lombardo posted on the Policing Fenland page: "These officers are currently still in bed but will be back on duty shortly ready to do it all over again.
"I'm very proud of their determination to make sure that this suspect was dealt with robustly.
"I would also like to thank all the members of the public that came forward after our appeal as this ensured that our case was as strong as possible."
It comes as special officers in Wisbech also ticketed 31 cars parked illegally yesterday (September 18).
