Six arrests after ‘botched burglary’ at Nottingham jewellery shop

Six people were arrested following reports that a high street jeweller had been burgled.

At this time it is believed nothing was taken during the botched burglary this morning (Friday 4 February) after intruders triggered the shop’s alarm.

Police attended A&A Jewellers, in Carlton Hill, Carlton, at around 1.10am to find a window had been smashed and a metal grille had been ripped from the brickwork to gain access to the property.

Acting on information provided by automatic number plate recognition cameras, officers quickly managed to locate and then pull over a car containing the six suspects just minutes later.

The six men, aged between 25 and 49, have all been arrested on suspicion of burglary and remain in custody as enquiries continue.

Detective Sergeant Gary Hewson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This is a great example of officers acting on the intelligence immediately available to them to quickly arrest a group of suspects within a short time.

“As a Force, we’re committed to reducing burglary in the communities we serve, as we understand the lasting impact this invasive crime can have on people.

“Nobody should ever have their livelihoods put at risk by intruders taking what isn’t theirs or be made to feel unsafe, which is why our officers are working so hard to reduce burglaries across the county.

“We are pleased to have made multiple arrests on this, but our enquiries are still ongoing, so we would appeal to anyone who may have any information relating to this incident to get in touch with us immediately.”

Anyone with any information or any further CCTV footage is asked to contact the police on 101, quoting incident number 119 of 4 February 2022.
