Officers stop stolen car in its tracks

Police used a stinger to stop a stolen car in its tracks after officers received intelligence that it was in the area. 

Officers swiftly caught up with the Honda Jazz and a pursuit took place around Sneinton Market after it failed to stop.

The stinger popped the car’s tyres to slow it down and allow officers to close in and stop it shortly after in Carlton Road, Sneinton, at around 9.30am on Tuesday (20 July 2021). 

Two men and a boy were arrested.

Jeane-Pierre Wilson, 19, of Alfreton Road, the Arboretum, has since been charged with dangerous driving, driving without insurance, driving without a licence and handling stolen goods. 

A 24-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy have also been arrested on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon after police searched the car and recovered a knife.

Detective Chief Inspector Nick Waldram, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "Officers reacted very swiftly to intelligence linking to a stolen vehicle which was previously reported to us.

"Wherever we receive intelligence like this, we will act upon it and investigate as efficiently as possible.

"A man has been charged with a number of driving offences and other arrests have been made after a knife was also found in the car.

"Our investigation continues and we would urge anyone with information which could help with our enquiries to get in touch on 101, quoting incident 222 of 20 July 2021."
