Arrests after attempted garage break-in in Nottingham

A rapid police response ensured a potential break-in was prevented and two suspects were arrested.

Response officers arrived two minutes after receiving reports someone was trying to get into garages in Aspley Lane, Aspley.

After arriving at the waste ground site around 12.45am on Tuesday (2 July), police heard people moving around on a garage roof.

At that point, two suspects jumped down from the roof and ran through an adjacent garden, before being detained nearby seconds later.

After retracing the steps taken during their short pursuit, officers seized a balaclava and a set of gloves.

Roof damage was also discovered to several garages, although no property was found to have been taken from within them.

Two men, aged 37 and 47, were subsequently arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary with intent to steal.

Sergeant Cai Kemish, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Thanks to the response officers arriving at the scene so quickly after this report came in, we were able to detain two suspects.

“On top of that, what we strongly suspect was an intended burglary was prevented from happening, so nothing was taken as a result.

“This incident provided a great example of exactly why it is so important that people report potential criminality as soon as they spot it.

“We would not have been able to attend as quickly as we did here, had this not been the case, so we’d like to thank the member of the public who contacted us.

“While we’ve arrested two suspects in connection with this, our inquiries are still ongoing, so we’d ask anyone with information to report it the police via 101, quoting incident 16 of 2 July 2024.

“Alternatively, information can be left anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
