FOUR men were reportedly caught by a resident tying to break into several cars in Fairford.
Police received a report in the early hours of October 8 of four men in the area acting suspiciously by trying numerous car door handles.
A spokesman for Gloucestershire police said: “Officers who were part of Operation Pentagon responded to the area and stopped a taxi.
“The four males were located and stop/search checks were conducted by the officers.
“The males were released as there was insufficient evidence.
“Thanks to the resident being vigilant and immediately reporting this suspicious activity in their area, we were able to quickly deploy officers to the area and disrupt/prevent a crime from taking place.
“We remind residents to remain alert and report any suspicious activity on 101 or 999 if you feel a crime is in progress.”
