Wanted man arrested in Nottingham city centre

A wanted man was arrested after patrolling cops spotted him in Nottingham city centre.

Jason Kelley was jailed in 2021 for burglary and released part-way through his sentence on licence.

But he failed to comply with the licence conditions and a warrant for his arrest was authorised on 17 March.

Four days later, the 38-year-old, of no fixed address, was spotted by neighbourhood cops conducting proactive patrols in the city centre.

They arrested him in Clumber Street and returned him to prison.

It was among a number of positive results during the police patrols, held as part of a ‘Day of Action’ to clamp down on crime in Nottingham.

A 45-year-old man was arrested in Milton Street for threatening and abusive behaviour.

A 36-year-old man was arrested in Station Street for failing to turn up for a court appearance in relation to begging offences. He was further arrested for possession of a bladed article after officers found a pair of scissors when searching him.

Meanwhile, a 63-year-old man was arrested in St Ann’s Well Road for assaulting a Community Protection Officer and assault with intent to resist arrest.

Six other individuals were also dealt with after being found to be in possession of illegal drugs.

Sergeant Richard Tiernan, of the City Centre neighbourhood policing team, said: “It was another successful day of action with plenty of activity.

“In total, there were 35 interactions with people including four arrests, 15 stop and searches and two begging warnings issued.

“We will continue to carry out proactive patrols as part of our ongoing efforts to clamp down on crime.

“I would encourage anyone who has any concerns in the city centre to report them to us as soon as possible on 101 or speak to our officers out on patrol.”
