A 20-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a break-in.

A Playstation4, games and cash are believed to be among the items taken after a back door was smashed to gain entry to the property in Grindon Crescent, Bulwell, at around 3.30am today (Saturday 1 August).

A Nottinghamshire Police response team attended the incident and after making enquiries they made an arrest a short time later. They also recovered a small quantity of cannabis.

A man remains in police custody and is being questioned on suspicion of burglary and possession of cannabis.

Detective Inspector Kayne Rukas said: "Swift action from our response teams led to a quick arrest and the investigation is now being led by the city's dedicated burglary team.

"Burglary can have a devastating impact on the victims and the thought of someone entering their home, where they should feel safe, can be really unsettling.

"Nottinghamshire Police recognises this impact and has dedicated burglary teams covering the city and the county whose focus is on catching offenders and reducing this type of crime. Burglary is reducing in Nottinghamshire and we are committed to keeping that trend going."
