Four arrests after stolen car reunited with owner

A stolen car was reunited with its owner and four suspects arrested after a fast-paced investigation.

Police were called at around 8.15am yesterday (Friday) morning – moments after the car had been taken from outside an address in Chestnut Close, Worksop, and driven away.

At around 2.30pm the vehicle was found abandoned in South Yorkshire and later returned to its owner.

Officers were later able to track a vehicle seen at the scene of the theft to an address in Nottinghamshire and made three arrests.

Two men – aged 21 and 18 – and a 15-year-old boy were arrested on suspicion of theft and remain in police custody.

A 33-year-old woman was also later arrested on suspicion of theft and remains in police custody.

The two younger suspects were also detained on suspicion of drugs offences after a quantity of cannabis was found.

Inspector Hayley Crawford, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a really good bit of work by the officers involved who put in a huge amount of effort to investigate what happened.

“Thanks to their efforts we were not only able to re-unite this car with its owner, but also take a significant quantity of illegal drugs off the streets as well.

“We understand how upsetting these offences are for victims and will always do whatever we can in the immediate aftermath of a theft to find the vehicles involved and identify suspects.”
