TWO men were arrested in Basildon on Friday afternoon.

Essex Police's Town Centre Team successfully apprehended two suspects for two different offences.

The first person was reported to have made off on foot from Asda after committing his third offence in the store in two days.

After being alerted to the incident, officers engaged in a lengthy foot chase through the surrounding streets with the suspect.

Eventually, as he made his way back into town, they managed to catch him.

The second suspect committed a theft in HMV, which was highlighted to the team via the town link radio.

A PCSO then spotted the man in the area, before arresting him.

Both males remain in custody.
