The car keys had been taken from inside the home and the owners discovered their car was missing from the driveway when they were awoken by officers.

Two boys, aged 16 and 17, have been arrested on suspicion of burglary. They remain in police custody.

Detective Sergeant Nathan Bingham, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“Our team of police dogs and their expertly trained handlers are an invaluable resource for the force, and this was another good example of a police dog showing his skills and tracking down two suspects.

“Burglary is an invasive crime which can be extremely upsetting for victims so I am pleased these two suspects are in custody.

“Our investigation remains ongoing and anyone with any information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 49 of 17 January 2023, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
