A Chinese motorist has been arrested for hanging up a fake police uniform in his car to deter thieves.

Police pulled up the car in Taiyan city after spotting the uniform hanging in a rear window, reports the Shanxi Evening Post.

"We were suspicious when we spotted a uniform hanging up in a civilian vehicle," said a police spokesman.

The 25-year-old driver admitted the uniform was fake, and said he hung it up to scare off thieves after his car was broken into previously.

Police released the driver after cautioning him and confiscating the uniform.
