Couple’s car stolen after Nottingham hotel room raided

A suspect has been arrested after a hotel room was raided and a car stolen.

Police were called after a couple returned to their room and found their bank cards and car keys missing.

They had been staying at a hotel in Nottingham city centre on Saturday night (28 May 2022).

On Sunday morning, they realised someone had been through their belongings and taken the car keys and bank cards, which were then used at a number of shops.

The couple then discovered their red Peugeot 3008, which they’d parked in a car park in Upper Parliament Street, had been stolen.

CCTV enquiries at the hotel led to a suspect being identified and a 35-year-old man was arrested today (30 May 2022) on suspicion of burglary and theft.

He was further detained on suspicion of breaching a court order following an unrelated incident in Wilkins Gardens, Clifton, on Sunday evening (29 May 2022).

Detective Sergeant Nigel Malik, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Thanks to the quick work by officers acting on intelligence we were able to arrest a suspect in connection with the theft of a car and other matters.

“We understand the impact any sort of theft can have on individuals, not only financially but also emotionally and that is why we will always do everything we can to bring those responsible to justice.”
