Gedling Neighbourhood Policing Team inspector Chris Pearson said: “I’m really pleased as a result of some great police work two suspects have been arrested and property stolen from the Gedling borough has now been recovered.

“We take vehicle thefts seriously and will do everything we can to bring offenders to justice. We’re also urging people to be vigilant and take steps to help prevent themselves becoming a victim of vehicle crime, including considering the security of vehicles when parked overnight. “

Only last night we received a report of a van being stolen from an address between 6pm and 10pm yesterday which remains under investigation.

“Our crime prevention advice includes making sure all doors to vehicles are locked and windows are closed while your vehicle is left unattended, however briefly.

“Always remove the ignition keys, never leave your vehicle unattended with the engine running and always keep your vehicle keys in a safe place, out of sight and away from windows and doors.

“We are also urging members of the public to be extra vigilant and if they see anyone acting suspiciously around vehicles to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or 999 if a crime is in progress.
