“Burglary is an invasive crime which aside from financial loss causes significant upset to victims. People should always feel safe in their homes and therefore we remain committed to tackling this crime and bringing burglary offenders to justice.

“In terms of burglary, in the Gedling borough, this July has seen around 16 less offences than July 2019 which is around a 40 per cent decrease in reported offending.

“Whilst the Coronavirus outbreak has undoubtedly impacted on crime levels there is also a huge amount of work that has gone into policing hotspot areas and targeting those who we know commit offences in the Gedling borough so the reduction we’ve seen in reported burglaries are encouraging.”

“The two suspects arrested in connection with the reported house burglary in Main Street were subsequently released on bail.
