A haul of stolen property from burglaries has been recovered thanks to the work of eagle-eyed officers from Nottinghamshire Police’s Operational Support.

Officers on patrol in Bulwell on Friday night (11 May 2018) spotted a car with a slight defect on its number plate. After it was stopped further enquiries revealed it had been stolen in a burglary in Nuthall and was displaying false plates.

Searches were carried out which led to an Aladdin’s cave of stolen property being unearthed. A man and a woman who were in the stolen vehicle were arrested and are now being linked to a number of burglaries across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. The woman was also found in possession of stolen credit cards.

Nottinghamshire Police now has two new dedicated burglary teams which are concentrating their efforts on tackling and reducing burglary in the city and county.

The teams have been created as part of a new Force structure, moving towards a more geographic model that provides dedicated policing services for the city and county, based in the communities they serve.


101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
