Detectives investigating a burglary at a city home have arrested a suspect.
Officers were called to a break-in at a flat in Tennyson Street, Nottingham, after two handbags were stolen.
The victims heard the front door opening and closing at around 2.15am on 24 May 2023 before noticing the bags were missing.
Fraudulent activity on a bank card, which was inside one of the bags, was then reported to one of the victims while officers were at the scene and they attended a nearby convenience store.
Detectives have studied CCTV outside the store and close to the victims’ home as part of their detailed investigation.
A 44-year-old man was arrested on Thursday (20 July) on suspicion of burglary, three counts of theft and fraud by false representation.
He was also further arrested on suspicion of possession of cannabis. He has been released on police bail as investigations continue.
Investigator Robert Gregory, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “The force has dedicated burglary teams working around the clock because we understand the impact this invasive crime has and how it can make people feel unsafe in their own homes.
“This arrest is an important step but our investigation remains ongoing. Anyone who has any information, Ring doorbell, CCTV or dash-cam footage which could assist with our inquiries should get in touch.”
Anyone with any information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 42 of 24 May 2023, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
