Five people have been arrested after police raided a caravan site this morning.

Operation Dovetail saw officers seize mobile phones and other electronic devices, air weapons, boxed toys,keys, red diesel fuel and a generator.

The multi-agency operation took place at Willen Caravan Site, in Willen Road, Newport Pagnell.

Det Insp Matt Darnell, who led the operation which was coordinated in conjunction with HMRC, said: “This was a really successful operation in which all officers played an important part.

“A number of items were seized, and we hope this sends out a clear signal that any kind of theft will not be tolerated in Milton Keynes.

“With the valuable help of our partner agencies, we will continue to carry out operations targeting those who think they can get away with stealing from others.”

> The following arrests were made:

A 38-year-old man – on suspicion of theft of motor vehicle and possession of a weapon when prohibited for life.

A 42-year-old man – on suspicion of two counts of theft of a caravan, and theft of toys.

A 40-year-old woman – on suspicion of two counts of theft of a caravan, and theft of toys.

A 22-year-old man – on suspicion of two counts of theft of a caravan, one count of theft of vending machines and one count of theft of toys.

A 36-year-old – on suspicion of theft of motor vehicle and theft of pallets.

All of those arrested are from Milton Keynes.
