Man charged with theft of police car's blue lights in Sunderland
A man has been charged in connection with the suspected disappearance of a police car’s blue lights.
The British Transport Police (BTP) investigation made national headlines following an incident last Christmas.
The lights are said to have been taken from a police car outside Sunderland’s main railway station at around 4.30am on Boxing Day.
A 28-year-old man was later arrested, released under investigation and is now charged with theft from a motor vehicle.
He will appear before South Tyneside Magistrates’s Court in March 2020.
