Police warn residents to be vigilant after arresting burglary suspect

Nottinghamshire Police is urging residents to be vigilant after arresting a man in connection with a burglary at a Radford apartment.

It was reported that a suspect was believed to have climbed through a ground floor window of a property in Templars Court before taking computer games and controllers from within.

Officers who were on mobile patrol yesterday arrested a 30-year-old man on suspicion of burglary following the incident which happened between 11 pm on 23 August and 8.50 am on 24 August. He remains in custody.

Detective Sergeant James Bond, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Tackling and reducing burglary is a priority for the force and we want to stop burglaries from happening in the first place.

“We don’t want anyone to fall victim to burglars so we’re urging people to think about their home security before it’s too late. “It’s important to consider whether you are leaving your home vulnerable to burglary and there are also steps people can take to remove the temptation for burglars by keeping possessions out of sight and making it seem like someone’s at home.”
