TWO men have been arrested this morning (Tues) after being caught trying to remove an alarm box from a house in Pill.

The pair were arrested as part of Operation Relentless after the police received an emergency call from a member of the public.

PC Jim Hampson and police dog Troy were just about to finish their shift when they were called to the house in Macrae Road in Ham Green.

The pair tried to flee but were quickly found and arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary.

The Avon and Somerset police force are currently carrying out raids across the district as part of the latest phase of Operation Relentless.
