Two teenagers arrested after police pursuit through Bulwell

Officers arrested two women after they spotted a van which they suspected was stolen.

Police spotted the van and followed it through the Piccadilly area of Bulwell.

It is then alleged that once officers turned on their lights and sirens, a pursuit took place around the area before coming to a stop in Park Lane.

After the vehicle stopped, a short foot chase then ensued before officers arrested a girl, aged 17, and a woman aged 19, on suspicion of thefts.

Following the reported chase, which took place at around 8.05pm last night (Sunday 19 September 2021), the 17-year-old was also further arrested on suspicion of the theft in relation to a Range Rover being reported stolen from Brand Street, Nottingham City Centre on 12 September 2021.

They remain in custody whilst they are questioned as part of the investigation.

Detective Sergeant Andy Buxton, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Officers were quick to react when they spotted a van which they suspected to be stolen.

“Whenever we get reports, or we suspect, that a stolen vehicle is in the area, we will always work quickly to catch up with it and stop it so we can investigate. We understand the impact having a vehicle stolen can have on its owners, causing financial loss and leaving them without transport, so we are committed to our investigations where this might be the case.

“Two people were arrested and currently remain in custody whilst officers investigating question them about these incidents which have been reported to us.

“Our investigation is ongoing and officers are continuing to make enquiries and understand the circumstances around what happened. We would urge anyone with information to get in touch on 101, quoting incident 731 of 19 September 2021.”
