Detective Sergeant James Bond, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Reports of burglary are always dealt with thoroughly and treated seriously.

“Officers in this instance arrived quickly at the victim’s address and were able then to track down the two suspects resulting in their arrest.

“Burglaries can have a huge impact on victims as not only are they left without their personal items but it can also affect them emotionally as it’s a complete breach of privacy in the place that most people consider their safe space.

“We encourage people to ensure their homes are left secure and for anyone who notices anything suspicious to report it to us as soon as possible.”

Anyone with additional information is asked to call 101 quoting incident 889 of 11 September 2021.
