Three arrested as officers investigate burglary at Nottingham retail park

A suspect was caught napping when police investigating burglaries at a garden centre came knocking at the door.

Officers swiftly carried out enquiries after reports of burglaries at the Homebase store at Madford Retail Park in Daybrook on Saturday (3 July).

As part of the ongoing investigation police attended a nearby address in Wilmington Gardens. After being let inside they found a man asleep on the sofa and plants believed to have been stolen from the business.

Two men, aged 43 and 46, were arrested on suspicion of burglary.

Police also arrested a third suspect in connection with a break-in at the garden centre on Saturday during which plants were stolen.

Officers were out on patrol in the Bestwood area later that night and stopped and detained a 37-year-old woman on suspicion of burglary.

Inspector Chris Pearson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Tackling burglary is one of our force priorities as the impact upon businesses and residents can be significant and long-lasting for victims.

“I can reassure members of the public that we remain committed to tackling and reducing burglary and targeting those who break into businesses as well as people’s homes.

“The force treats burglary and theft very seriously and will continue to deal robustly with anyone believed to be involved in such crimes and work hard to secure justice for victims.”
