Three men have been arrested following the report of a vehicle theft incident at Strandview Street in south Belfast on Monday 20th July.
It was reported that three males approached a man in the street, at around 8pm, as he stood beside his car.

A short time later, at around 8.20pm, the car was located on fire after it had crashed at Purdysburn Road in Newtownbreda. A police patrol located and arrested three male suspects at the nearby Hydebank Playing Fields.
