Police recover six stolen vehicles in Nottingham

Six stolen vehicles were recovered after patrolling officers became suspicious of a parked car.

Officers spotted the car parked outside a council-owed block of garages in Staverton Road, Bilborough, shortly before 2.45 pm on Thursday 19 January.

Aware that the garages had no registered occupants, the officers took a closer look and discovered the stolen vehicles parked up inside several open units.

Two other vehicles of interest were found during an additional search of locked units the following day.

All the vehicles have now been recovered and investigations continue.

Detective Sergeant James Hirst, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Vehicle crime of this nature comes at a cost not only to the immediate victims, but also to all drivers who end up paying high insurance premiums as a result.

“I am pleased we have been able to recover so many stolen cars in one go and am thankful to the inquisitiveness of the officers involved.

“Our investigations are ongoing and we are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed usual activity in the area in recent weeks and months.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident 393 of 19 January 2022.
