Police have charged three people - including a man in Radcliffe - with conspiracy to steal after several keyless car thefts across Bury and Lancashire.

Bury’s Serious Acquisitive Crime Team charged Hamza Zeb, 23, of Cateaton Street, Bury, Kacper Borowski, 20, of Seddon Avenue, Radcliffe, and Mackenzie Charnock, 19, of Garston Street, Bury.

They have all been remanded in custody ahead of a hearing at Manchester and Salford Magistrates Court tomorrow, Saturday.

On Thursday, officers executed four warrants in relation to several keyless thefts of Land Rover Range Rovers in Bury and across the border in to Lancashire.

DS Rebecca Dickinson, of Bury’s Serious Acquisitive Crime Team, said: “We understand the impact vehicle theft has on our communities and that victims of this type of crime have often worked incredibly hard to enable themselves to buy vehicles, which are sometimes their pride and joy.

“These charges follow a lengthy and complexed investigation by officers in Bury, supported by a colleague from Lancashire Police.

“Building public trust and confidence is the foundations on which policing is built.

"This is reflected in our determination to investigate and solve crime by working with partner agencies to respond to intelligence gathered both proactively and as a result of contact with members of the public.”
