A man has this morning been charged with the theft of a National Crime Agency BMW that was stolen from outside a Solihull home.

West Midlands Police issued an alert on Monday that an unmarked BMW with fitted sirens and blue lights was being used by two men who were posing as police officers to flag down motorists in Small Heath.

The woman rightly suspected the men were bogus PCs and refused to get into the NCA vehicle which was stolen from an address in Shirley following a burglary on Sunday (7 May).

Detectives later arrested Kadim Shah, from Lewis Road in Stirchley, on suspicion of involvement in the car theft.

And last night the 19-year-old shop worker was charged with taking a vehicle without consent and driving without insurance or a licence.

Shah is due to appear at Birmingham Magistrates Court today.

Enquiries are on-going to locate a second man suspected of being involved.
