Marked police vehicle parked outside police station stolen
A man accused of stealing a marked police van from outside a Suffolk police station appeared in court on Monday (November 12).
The Vauxhall Vivaro van was taken from outside Lowestoft police station on Saturday evening (November 10) and found abandoned at around 1am the following day.
Officers had responded to several reports that the van was being driven erratically at a number of different locations.

Warman appeared before Norwich Magistrates’ Court via video-link and was remanded in custody until December 10. No pleas were made.
