THE police helicopter was sent to search for burglars who had broken into a derelict industrial unit.

At 12.20am on Sunday, June 26, a report was received that three men were stealing cable from the former Innovative Logistics site, in the Holmewood Industrial Park.

The aircraft searched the neighbourhood and the crew directed officers on the ground to two men, who were arrested on suspicion of burglary.

The 18-year-old, from Heath, and 22-year-old, from Holmewood, have been released on bail pending further inquiries.
