A trio of men were arrested on suspicion of stealing several bikes after being spotted in the back yard of a police station.
Officers went out to investigate after the men were seen in the yard behind Corby Police Station just before 11pm last night (Monday).
A spokesman for the force said: “Three people were spotted in the yard behind Corby Police Station.
“Officers detained three people who were subsequently arrested on suspicion of stealing a number of bicycles.
“Three men aged 38, 44 and 59 are currently in custody.”
It is believed that the bikes were ones which had been previously recovered by police or handed in as lost property, and not bikes belonging to the force.
