A MAN has been arrested after police were called to a report of a burglary in progress in Trowbridge.

A security guard phoned 999 at 10.12pm on Monday after seeing two people acting suspiciously near Travis Perkins in Bradford Road.

Officers, accompanied by a dog unit, searched the site and located a man hiding up a tree, who would not come down due to fear of the police dog.

Eventually he was persuaded to climb down from the tree and, although he tried to run from police, he was detained.

At this stage it is not yet clear if anything was stolen from the site.

A 29-year-old man from Westbury has been arrested on suspicion of burglary and is currently in police custody.
