A suspected fuel thief being tracked by a Wiltshire Police helicopter tried to avoid detection by on-board thermal imaging cameras by hiding in manure.
The 34-year-old Lithuanian man, from Ilford, Essex, was found
face-down in the dung by officers after abandoning his van in Manton near Marlborough.
The search was launched on Wednesday night after a
suspicious van with a tank and pumping equipment was spotted.
The man was arrested, cautioned and released without charge — via redwolf.newsvine.com
