Man Arrested After Theft From Vehicle In Mansfield

9th February 2018
News, Mansfield

Police have arrested a 29-year-old man on suspicion of theft from a motor vehicle in Mansfield.

Officers were on patrol in Berry Hill and surrounding areas at about 11.20pm on Wednesday 7 February when they noticed a man acting suspiciously in Lingforest Road. The man was reportedly seen trying doors of vehicles before he was arrested a short time after. He remains in police custody.

Police have recovered a number of items stolen from vehicles in the area and are appealing for anyone in the Mansfield area who has had items stolen to get in touch by calling 101, quoting incident number 935 of 7 February 2018.

Officers are also warning residents to be vigilant after a number of thefts from vehicles in the Mansfield district.

Inspector Nick Butler, of the Mansfield Partnership Hub, said: "It’s important that people make sure their vehicles are not an easy target.

"I met with residents on Tuesday night and they raised concerns about prowlers and vehicles being broken into in the Berry Hill area.

"As a result we targeted the area and changed some officers' shifts to work through the night.

"I’m pleased to say we have had a good result but we will continue with our plans as there are still thieves about at night. We really need everyone to make sure they don’t leave valuables in their vehicles and make sure they are locked."

Police are also urging Mansfield residents to report any suspicious people or vehicles to them immediately by calling 101.

Insp Butler added: "We’re urging residents to be a bit more savvy to avoid them becoming a victim of vehicle crime. We’re also encouraging them not to hesitate in reporting any suspicious vehicles or people to us. Our message to them is ‘if you’re in doubt, shout’ and let us know."

Anyone with information about the thefts is urged to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
