The vehicle was then located nearby by response crews and the police dog tracked to a location where a man was arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary.

Detective Sergeant Jamie Moore who is leading the investigation, said: “This incident saw a very quick approach by our response colleagues who were able to co-ordinate both the drone and the dog teams to the scene.

“It led to a man being arrested nearby who remains in custody while we carry out our investigation work.

“Burglaries are taken extremely seriously and Nottinghamshire Police will use all the resources available to track down offenders.”
