TWO stolen cars parked metres apart have been seized by police.

Officers on foot patrol in Tonge Moor this morning when they came across a wanted silver Vauxhall Corsa in Scowcroft Street.

The car had been stolen from a nearby garage.

It has since been seized and returned to its rightful owners, police said.

The Bolton News:

Shortly after finding the Vauxhall, officers from the same neighbourhood team came across another stolen car in Starkie Road.

The grey BMW 4 Series had been stolen in a burglary at a house in Bury on Tuesday.

It was also discovered to be on false plates.

Officers then seized the car and took it in for forensic examination.
