Suspicious behaviour leads to an arrest in East Bridgford

Officers make arrest after attempted burglary in East Bridgford.

Officers were initially called to a service station in East Bridgford after reports that a man’s behaviour was causing concern.

In the meantime, it was reported that a property in Fosse Way, Car Colston, had been broken into.

The owners had noticed that a window, previously closed, was open with a chair underneath it and that there were footprints on the worktop.

This is believed to have happened between 7am and 8am on Sunday (18 October 2021).

However, nothing was reported stolen.

Officers remained with the man whilst their colleagues were making enquiries into the incident and the 52-year-old was subsequently arrested on suspicion of burglary.

Detective Sergeant Julian Eminson-Ferry, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a great bit of teamwork from our officers to quickly identify a suspect and bring them in for questioning.

“We hope the swift action taken by officers provides some reassurance that, when we investigate burglaries, we understand the impact that such a breach of privacy can have and various departments will work as a team to gather information and take the appropriate action.

“Our enquiries are ongoing and we would ask anyone with information to get in touch on 101, quoting incident 209 of 17 October 2021.”

Information can be given and reports can also be made anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
