A Facebook post from West Yorkshire Police said: “Whilst working at the address, two Special Constables became suspicious about two occupants of a passing vehicle that appeared to be taking a bit of an interest in the police activity in the area.

“The officers quickly followed the vehicle and stopped it on the main road nearby. Subsequent questioning and a search by the officers provided evidence to link the two.”
