Car stolen from Bassetlaw village is found in West Yorkshire after arrest
A Mercedes stolen from outside a house in Blyth has been found after police searched a house in West Yorkshire.
The car was reported stolen from a house in Spitalfields, in Blyth in the early house of June 21.
It is believed that a man had broken into the house and threatened a victim into handing over their car keys before taking the vehicle and fleeing the area.
A 28-year-old man was arrested on July 13 by West Yorkshire Police in connection with a separate matter in that force area.
Following a search, the keys to the stolen Mercedes were recovered and the man was then arrested on suspicion of burglary as part of Nottinghamshire Police’s investigation.
Detectives are now working hard to establish the circumstances and have appealed for anyone with information to come forward.
Detective Inspector Nicholas Hall, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We have been conducting a thorough investigation into the burglary in Worksop since it was reported to us and we are pleased that an arrest has been made as part of police enquiries.
“It is also good news that the car has been recovered.
“Burglary can have a devastating impact on victims both financially and psychologically and we will always look to take swift action against offenders.
“We will now work closely with our colleagues in West Yorkshire Police as part of our enquiries into the burglary and would appeal for anyone who may have witnessed something to come forward.”
Anyone who has any information should call Nottinghamshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 83 of June 21.
