'Relentless' police catch thieves in Bath just a short time after crimes committed
Police have tracked and caught a mobile phone thief only a short time after the device was stolen in a Bath club, by using the iPhone's tracker system.
Officers arrested a man shortly after a woman reported her iPhone and purse stolen from the venue on the Lower Bristol road in the early hours of yesterday morning.
Two men in a van were also stopped and searched near Chippenham this week and found to be in possession of suspected stolen goods – only hours after two burglaries had been reported in Bath.
The men were charged and property including expensive laptops and iPods was seized.

Police across Bath and north east Somerset have arrested more than 40 people in the past 30 days in their crackdown on burglary, robbery and theft.
As part of Operation Relentless officers have carried out warrants, seized drugs and recovered large amounts of stolen property worth tens of thousands of pounds.
Operations Inspector Scott Talbert said: "Everyone on the district has worked hard to achieve some fantastic results, and as a direct result there are far fewer victims of serious acquisitive crime in Bath and North east Somerset."
Other success include the arrest of a man suspected of three burglaries at the University of Bath; a man arrested for money laundering after being found in possession of a large amount of cash that he could not account for; and six operations on the roads that have yielded arrests for motoring offences including drink and drug driving and driving without insurance.
