Officers from Operation Reacher were made aware of a burglary that had taken place overnight at Aldi, in Gateford Road, Worksop on Sunday May 1.
Two men had stolen £500 worth of alcohol, £600 of fresh meat and washing detergent, countless Bags for Life, and a trolley.
An officer later spotted a male matching one of the descriptions given on the Sandy Lane estate.
The man was arrested on suspicion of burglary.
Only a few minutes later, the same officer saw a male matching the description of the other offender leaving his flat.
The man was approached and a search of his flat took place where officers found bottles of alcohol, large amounts of washing detergent, fresh chicken – and some fishing overalls.
The man was arrested on suspicion of burglary and joined his co-defendent in custody.
A 43-year-old man was charged and remanded on suspicion of burglary, and a 57-year-old was released under investigation whilst enquiries continue.
