DETECTIVES are still questioning three men after over an organised spate of car thefts across Belfast on Thursday.
The cars were taken in north and south Belfast as their owners defrosted the vehicles and left the engines running.
Two men aged 24 and one aged 28 years were arrested on Thursday evening in the Dunmurry area on suspicion of handling stolen goods.
They are currently assisting police with their enquiries.
Five cars were taken from outside homes in the south, east and north of the city on Thursday morning.
Some of the areas targeted included Rosetta Park, Ardenlee Green and Orangefield Avenue.
Police warned motorists not to leave their cars unattended with the engines running as it presents a gift to opportunistic thieves.
Chief Inspector Gabriel Moran said he believes the thefts may have been organised.
“My officers are conducting a number of lines of inquiry are being investigated including the possibility that the incidents may be linked,” he said.
