Nottinghamshire Police arrest man after series of burglaries in Farnsfield
A man has been arrested in connection with multiple burglaries committed on the same day.
The burglaries took place at properties in Farnsfield and varying items were stolen.
A gold pendent was stolen from a property on Spring Lane after a window was smashed.
Two expensive watches and £1,500 cash were taken from a house on Fletcher Court after a window was forced open with a tool.
Jewellery was stolen from a house on Alexander Road after a window was put through.
And ornaments, jewellery and watches were taken from a house on Station Lane after a window was forced open.
All four burglaries were reported to have happened on September 30 last year.
Following inquiries, a 20-year-old man was arrested today on suspicion of all four burglaries.
Pc Joel Hughes, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Burglary is an awful invasive crime that can make people feel unsafe in their own homes.
"That’s why the force takes it so seriously and invests so much time into tracking down offenders and working hard to prevent these sort of upsetting crimes from happening in the first place."
Nottinghamshire Police has two pro-active burglary teams committed to tackling this type of crime as well as supporting victims.
Their ongoing work has contributed towards a 38% drop in house burglaries across Nottinghamshire compared to two years ago, with crime already going down before covid.
Nottinghamshire Police also recently appointed a specialist burglary reduction officer to help prevent offences from happening.
