Two North Someset men were arrested for theft from motor vehicles this month as part of Operation Relentless.

Operation Relentless was launched in September to target Avon and Somerset's most wanted burglars, robbers, car thieves and stolen goods handlers.

James Kew, aged 21, from Cleeve was arrested on Tuesday, September 11.

He was charged the same day with two counts of theft from motor vehicles.

A 31-year-old man from Backwell was also arrested for theft from a motor vehicle and is currently on police bail pending further enquiries.
