The break-in took place in the middle of May. The property owner told police someone had got into a garage and storeroom.

There were clear signs someone had had a rummage through the inside of a car parked inside, although nothing appeared to have been taken. It also looked as though someone had been poking around at the batteries of a lorry, which was also parked there.

Both the pump and the paint gun were missing.

The arrested man has an extensive police record.
