POLICE have arrested a man this morning following the theft of a plaque in memory of Warrington's IRA bomb victims.
As first reported by the Warrington Guardian, the plaque, part of the River of Life memorial on Bridge Street, was stolen between April 20 and May 5.
This morning, Saturday, officers arrested a 57-year- old from Penketh on suspicion of theft.
He has been quizzed by detectives and bailed until July.
The memorial plaque, dedicated to Johanathan Ball and Tim Parry, killed in the 1993 attack, was recovered in its original state police say.
As part of this continued investigation, detectives have released CCTV of further suspects police wish to trace.
Richard Strachan, Chief Superintendent for Warrington and Halton, said "This investigation is progressing successfully and I would like to thank the communities of Warrington for their assistance, and acknowledge the continued support from Warrington Borough Council, particularly the work of town centre CCTV operatives in advancing our enquiries.
"I would urge anyone who recognises the men captured in these CCTV images to contact us as soon as possible"
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Warrington CID on 101.
