Two cars stolen after thieves steal keys from Clifton home

Police investigating a house burglary in which two cars were stolen from a driveway have arrested a suspect.
Bank cards, a handbag, cash and a games console were also taken in the raid on a property in Dovenby Road, Clifton, Nottingham.

An offender is believed to have entered the house through a side door and stolen the car keys and other items from inside the living room.

Officers attended the scene after the burglary was reported at around 8 am on 1 June 2023 and have carried out house-to-house inquiries and trawled through CCTV footage in the area as part of their investigation.

A 17-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of burglary on Monday (24 July).

Police Constable Andre Foster, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We understand the impact motor vehicle theft can have on victims – people rely on their cars to get around and to get to work.

“Burglaries are also extremely distressing, invasive crimes and that is why we have teams of officers dedicated to investigating them.

“We also work hard on prevention by urging people to keep their properties as secure as possible.

“Most burglaries are committed by offenders entering through home insecurities, be it open windows or unlocked doors, so I would urge members of the public to do everything they can to improve security on their house or flat.
