Two burglary suspects arrested after car in collision with police vehicle

Two suspects were tracked down and arrested in connection with an overnight burglary.

Response officers quickly carried out enquiries after an intruder got into an address through an unsecured window and stole a laptop and AirPods.

Information was received about a car believed to be involved in the burglary which happened in Lower Road, Beeston.

Officers spotted and followed the vehicle but it failed to stop and collided with a police car, causing minor damage, as the driver drove off.

The car was later found abandoned close by afterwards. Officers swiftly acted on further information they received which led them to a flat in Dunkirk where they recovered the stolen AirPods and arrested two suspects.

Two men, aged 26 and 24, have been questioned on suspicion of burglary.

The incident happened during the early hours of yesterday (Tuesday 31 May 2022).

Detective Inspector Nick Hall, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “I’m pleased that thanks to some great work by response officers, assisted by other force departments, we managed to move in and make two arrests as well as recovering stolen property.

“We know how upsetting burglary can be and the long-term impact these sort of incidents can have on people.

“As our investigation continues, this incident is also a timely reminder to residents to make sure their homes are kept secure at all times.

“We want to do everything we can to prevent burglaries from happening in the first place. Burglars are often opportunistic thieves, looking for the easiest way of getting into your home without being seen or disturbed.

“We can’t stress enough how important it is to make sure your front and back doors and your windows are kept locked, even when you’re in the house.

“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.”
