Sergeant Christian Hurley, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“We have been working hard to trace the offenders after this break-in as we are fully aware of the impact this sort of crime can have on local businesses.

“We will always offer a robust response when community stores are targeted like this and their shelves ransacked.

“This arrest is an important step in the investigation but we still want to hear from anyone who has any information, CCTV, dashcam or doorbell footage which could help with our inquiries.”

Anyone with any information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 721 of 30 December 2023, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
