Swindon police say two teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of burglary following three incidents in Swindon.

Officers have been investigating reports of two people entering the Park Off Licence in Faringdon Road, stealing alcohol and threatening staff with a golf club and a piece of wood.

One of the offenders returned two weeks later, taking a small number of vapes, and then returned a day later, reached over the counter and took a box of about 100 vapes.

The first incident took place 11 June with the following two incidents taking place on 25 and 26 of that month.

The police say two suspects were arrested yesterday evening - 29 August - with the help of Police Dog Stan in the town centre.

They have been released on bail pending further enquiries.
