A WINTER crime crackdown across West Yorkshire has had some success in Huddersfield.
Police across the county have been targeting known villains, beefing up patrols and using the latest computer technology to carry out roadside checks and stop suspicious cars.
Checks using automatic number plate recognition led to more than 30 vehicles being stopped in the town.
Equipment thought to be used for stealing alloy wheels was recovered from one car.
Officers arrested a 33-year-old Huddersfield man on suspicion of going equipped to steal. He is being questioned by police.
The crackdown is part of the Target scheme, West Yorkshire Police's biggest ever crackdown on crime and the fear of crime.
The latest week of action started on Monday and has so far led to more than 140 arrests and the recovery of seven stolen vehicles.
They included a VW Golf that was found in Leeds. It was stolen in Wakefield.
