The man will now be questioned in relation to the thefts before police make a decision on charging for th crimes.

However, they stressed the man will be going "straight to prison".

"Thanks to all LPTs who have had a hand in trawling through CCTV and gathering evidence, which will no doubt lead to a successful prosecution"
