A third arrest has been made as police continue to investigate the possible theft of power tools found in a vehicle in Ipswich.

Suffolk police arrested a 48-year-old man on suspicion of aiding and abetting burglary and handling stolen goods on April 23.

This comes after a number of power tools, which are thought to be stolen, were found in a black Audi A3 which failed to stop for officers in Raeburn Road Ipswich on April 13.

Officers followed the vehicle before the driver decamped in Landseer Road.

Police arrested a 17-year-old driver on suspicion of failing to stop when directed, dangerous driving, driving without insurance, handling stolen goods, and aggravated vehicle taking. 

A second man, aged 19, was also arrested on April 13, on suspicion of handling stolen goods and assault on a police officer. Both of these men were released on bail to return on May 7. 

A police spokesman said a number of men were seen around the vehicle before it drove off and failed to stop for officers. 

Officers have since released further images of the recovered tools.
