A MAN has been arrested after a series of burglaries across Ringwood.

Properties in Swan Mead, Ashley Close, Westbury Road, Addison Square and Green Lane have been targeted since the beginning of November.

Hampshire Constabulary says specialist officers sighted a vehicle of interest which had been linked to the recent burglaries – and after seeing the driver leave the vehicle – officers made themselves known to the suspect and detained him.

A 27-year-old man from Dibden was arrested on suspicion of non-dwelling burglaries.

He was later release under investigation pending further enquires.
