Two men have been arrested after police found an outbuilding at Upwell being used as a “chop shop”.

Officers from Operation Moonshot team found a commercial hangar in Upwell being used to dismantle stolen vehicles from a number of counties, including Suffolk, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and London.

 Four stolen vehicles, including Range Rovers and an Audi A7, plus stolen plant machinery were seized last Tuesday at the outbuilding in Small Lode, along with parts linked to other stolen vehicles.

 A man in his 30s and a man in his 60s were arrested at the scene on suspicion of theft and taken to King’s Lynn police station for questioning.

 The man in his 30s was later released on conditional bail while enquiries continue, while the older man was released under investigation.

 Temporary Superintendent Lou Provart said: “This finding was the result of a fantastic piece of proactive work from our dedicated Moonshot team. 

“They continue working to target criminals, particularly those on our roads, who think Norfolk is a place to hide from involvement in serious crime across the UK. Our message is clear – there is no place to hide.”
