Neighbourhood Policing Inspector for Rushcliffe, Rob Lawton, said: “This was excellent work from teams across the force to investigate and arrest a man in connection with these incidents.

“We understand the impact burglary offences can have on a person, family or business both emotionally and financially. That’s why we will always work extremely hard to investigate using all the resources available to us.

“I am pleased we now have a suspect in custody in relation to these incidents.

“Our investigation into these reports is continuing and I would ask anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in those areas to get in touch with us or speak to a patrolling officer.”
