Man charged with theft of vehicle used as bogus cop car

Solihull Editorial 11th May, 2017   0

A MAN has been charged in connection with the theft of a National Crime Agency vehicle that was stolen from outside a Solihull home.

West Midlands Police issued an alert on Monday (8 May) after an unmarked BMW − fitted with sirens and blue lights − was used by men posing as police officers to flag down a motorist in Small Heath.

The woman rightly suspected the men were bogus PCs and refused to get into the NCA vehicle which was stolen from an address in Shirley following a burglary on Sunday (May 7).

Detectives later arrested Kadim Shah, from Lewis Road in Stirchley, on suspicion of involvement in the car theft.

And last night the 19-year-old shop worker was charged with taking a vehicle without consent and driving without insurance or a licence.

Shah is due to appear at Birmingham Magistrates Court today (Thursday).

Enquiries are on-going to locate a second man suspected of being involved.
