Suspects appear in court after police recover stolen car

Two men have appeared in court after police recovered a car which had been stolen during a raid on a home.

Residents at the property, in Ashford Rise, Sutton-in-Ashfield, were awoken around 1:50 am on Saturday (23 March) when they heard a noise inside their home.

They then discovered a car was missing from the driveway and a number of items had been taken from inside the address.

Officers attended the scene and were made aware a short time later that a bank card stolen in the burglary had been used at a petrol station in Sutton-in-Ashfield.

Officers on patrol around 8:40 am spotted the car on Coxmoor Road and after a brief pursuit, it was found abandoned.

One suspect was arrested nearby and another man was detained following further police searches.

A 41-year-old man from Sutton-in-Ashfield, and a 43-year-old man of HMP Ranby, have been charged with burglary and theft of a motor vehicle.

They both appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Monday (25 March) and were remanded in custody until their next appearance at Nottingham Crown Court on 15 April 2024.

Detective Sergeant Nathan Bingham, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“Officers on patrol worked quickly and efficiently to trace the stolen car and arrest two suspects.

“Supporting victims of burglaries is a key priority for the force because we understand the impact this type of invasive crime can have on people.”
