Three people have been arrested after a house was broken into, burgled and a Porsche was stolen.

Officers were called to Bourne Avenue, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, at around 5.30am this morning (3 August). The window of a ground floor bungalow was smashed and a purse, bag and car keys are believed to have been stolen. The keys were then used to steal a Porsche from the property.

A few hours earlier, police were called after men in a white van are believed to have taken fuel without paying from a station in Sutton-in-Ashfield. A white van was also seen leaving the scene of the burglary.

Officers were able to track the car and followed it to the border, where colleagues from Humberside Police continued to track it and recovered the Porsche in West Hull.

Two boys, aged 14 and 17, and a 28-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of burglary, bilking and dangerous driving. They remain in police custody.

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.
