Police investigating reports of a car theft have made two arrests.
A white Nissan Qashai was reported stolen from a property in Hill Road, Bestwood, in the early hours of Monday (18 October).
Officers from Nottinghamshire Police’s road crime team located the vehicle on a driveway in Heanor.
Enquiries led to the team suspecting the theft had been concocted in order to make a fraudulent insurance claim.
Two men aged 22 and 31 have been arrested on suspicion of staging a vehicle theft with the intention to defraud.
PC Dan Butler, of Nottinghamshire Police’s road crime team, said: “We take insurance fraud really seriously and we investigate all reports we receive thoroughly.
“Excellent police work has led to two arrests and the investigation remains ongoing.”
