Sergeant Simon Lacey said:

“Officers treat every report of burglary, business or home, extremely seriously as we know the immense impact this crime has on victims.

“We were on the scene within minutes of this job coming through and managed to detain a 43-year-old man and arrest him on suspicion of burglary.

“We also managed to return the bottles of alcohol back to the pub, preventing them from losing a lot of stock.”
