Officers from Thames Valley Police (Roads Policing Unit) helped to fill the stomachs of a hungry member of the public after their delivery driver was arrested.
The vehicle being used for the delivery came to the officer’s attention after their on-board Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system alerted them to the fact that the car had previously made off from the police.
After indicating for the vehicle to stop in Woodley, Reading, the delivery driver then attempted to give false details to the officers.
But it was not long until officers managed to work out the true identity of the driver thanks to some clever on-board technology.
The roads policing unit officers seized the vehicle after it transpired that it was not insured, the driver had no driver licence and the cord of one of the tyres was exposed.
The driver was also arrested on suspicion of drug-driving.
As the vehicle was stopped, only three doors away from where the food was supposed to be delivered, officers walked the short distance and handed the food over to the customer.
One follower mentioned that they would ‘love to have seen the look on the face of the person you delivered the kebab to’.
To which a member of the roads policing unit tweeted back: ‘He was very appreciative and found it quite amusing!’.
