POLICE have warned people about car deals being "too good to be true" after stopping a "genuine purchaser" in a stolen Land Rover.

Officers from West Yorkshire Police's Steerside Enforcement Team - the force's dedicated initiative for tackling anti-social and dangerous driving - were in Keighley when a tracker began "pinging".

It was for a Land Rover Discovery that was stolen two years ago in the Keighley area.

The Team and officers from West Yorkshire Police's Shipley Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) managed to find the vehicle and stopped it.

Driving it was a "genuine purchaser" who was unaware the car was stolen/on false plates.

A spokesperson for the Steerside Team said: "Vehicle stolen two years ago in Keighley area.

"Tracker pinging today in Keighley.

"Found by Steerside with help from Shipley - genuine purchaser not aware that the vehicle was stolen/on false plates.

"Be careful when you buy a second hand car; too good to be true? Probably is."
