Police showed their determination to crack down on burglary after arresting a suspect in connection with multiple offences.

The arrest comes after four house burglaries in Farnsfield, near Newark, on the same day.

A gold pendent was stolen from a property in Spring Lane after a window was smashed.

Two expensive watches and £1,500 cash were taken from a house in Fletcher Court after a window was forced open with a tool.

Jewellery was stolen from a house in Alexander Road after a window was smashed.

And ornaments, jewellery and watches were taken from a house in Station Lane after a window was forced open.

All four burglaries were reported to have happened on 30 September last year.

Following enquiries a 20-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday (12 January December 20212 on suspicion of all four burglaries.

PC Joel Hughes, from 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 proactive burglary teams which are committed to tackling this type of crime as well as supporting victims.

Their ongoing work has contributed towards a 38 per cent 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.
