Three Teenagers Arrested In Portsmouth

Three arrested after moped stolen in Portsmouth Police are continuing to investigate the theft of a moped in Portsmouth after three teenagers were arrested.

Officers were called to Stamshaw Park in North End at around 2am on Thursday, August 16 after a moped was set on fire and left on a pathway. 

The moped, a 125cc black and silver Cagiva Planet, had been reported stolen recently from Lomond Close.
