Wiltshire Police attended a house in Bath with the intention of arresting a teen after several motorbikes were stolen from Corsham, but officers found more than they bargained for.

Between March 20 and March 31, a total of three motorbikes were stolen from the Corsham area, with one other reported as an attempted theft.

After several appeals for help from the public, Wiltshire officers were able to use intel from Avon and Somerset Police to identify a 17-year-old male suspect from Bath that they believed to be responsible for the thefts.

On Friday, April 5, the Corsham officers, members of the Local Policing Tasking Team and colleagues from Avon and Somerset Police all attended the teen's address in Bath with the intention of arresting him on suspicion of motorbike theft and vehicle interference.

But when they arrived at the house, police were shocked to find a large quantity of drugs, money and paraphernalia all located in the house.

The teenager, who cannot be named because of his age, was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of a class B controlled drug, as well as being arrested on suspicion of the three motorbike thefts.

The suspect has now been released on bail while enquiries continue, but ordered not to enter Wiltshire or else he could risk facing a harsher sentence in court.
