Burglar steals safe and £1,000 from Nottinghamshire house

Detectives investigating a burglary where a large amount of cash was stolen have arrested a suspect.

Officers were called to Plane Tree Court, Hucknall, following reports a house had been broken into.

More than £1,000 worth of cash was taken, along with a safe where most of the stolen money was stashed.

The burglary happened at some point between 2.30pm and 4pm on Tuesday (8 November), with the homeowner reporting it the following day.

Officers have since arrested a 28-year-old man on suspicion of burglary.

Detective Sergeant Ben Skellern, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “A large amount of cash was stolen during this break-in, which has understandably left the victim very upset.

“There is no excuse for anyone to break into another person’s home and take things that don’t belong to them.

“Having your home burgled can have a hugely detrimental impact on people’s lives, both from a financial and emotional standpoint.

“It’s for this very reason why we treat all reports of this nature so seriously and why we have two dedicated burglary teams who work solely to bring burglars to justice and prevent these offences from happening.

“We have now arrested a suspect in connection with this incident but our inquiries remain ongoing, so we’d ask anyone with information to contact the police on 101, quoting incident 23 of 9 November 2022.

“Information can also be left anonymously with Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.”
