Two men who were spotted acting suspiciously by an off-duty PCSO following a burglary in Ruddington have been jailed.

Robert Sisson, 28, and Roy Sisson, 38, both of Bridgefarm Lane, Clifton, were sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court yesterday (Wednesday 9 August 2017) having previously pleaded guilty to two counts of handling stolen goods.

They were both put behind bars for 13 months.

On Saturday 8 July 2017 an off duty PCSO made their colleagues aware of two men acting suspiciously.

A search was carried out and when the two men were spotted they abandoned their bags and made off on foot.

Robert Sisson was detained at the scene by another PCSO who held onto him until officers arrived.

The abandoned items were identified as goods that had been stolen during a burglary in Ruddington which happened between 7.30pm on July 7 and 5pm on July 8.

Days later, on 11 July, Roy Sisson was found hiding in a wardrobe in his home address and was arrested at the scene. He pleaded guilty to handling stolen goods when he appeared in court the next day.

Sergeant Paul Ferguson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "The off duty PCSO and his fellow officers did an excellent job in this case.

"Our PCSOs are dedicated to making a difference in the communities we serve. They play a vital contribution to local policing and making their local neighbourhoods safer.

"I'd encourage anyone interested in joining Nottinghamshire Police as a PCSO to apply today."

As a PCSO you will be able to develop your skills in dealing with people and will gain job satisfaction from making a difference in your community.

Every day you will see how your role makes a positive contribution to local policing, solving issues that affect quality of life for the community and making your community stronger and safer.

Working alongside regular police officers, you will have a key role in making local neighbourhoods safer and through your presence help the community feel safer.

PCSO recruitment ends at midnight on Friday 18 August.
