POLICE are still hunting the thieves who are posing as car-buyers to steal top-of-the-range vehicles.

Two BMWs and a Mercedes have been stolen from owners in Meriden, Hampton-in-Arden and Olton.

On each occasion, the offender has replied to a classified advert and asked to take the car for a spin.

But during the test drive, the thief has sped off in the vehicle, leaving the owner stranded at the roadside.

Det Insp Neil Thomas said police were keeping an open mind, but it was thought all the thefts were connected.

The incidents all took place between 6-7pm and one of the vehicles has since been recovered by officers.

Anyone with information should call PC Tom Finch on 0345 113 5000.
