Police have seized a suspected stolen moped and arrested a man following a pursuit which started in the Daybrook area and ended in an Arnold park.

Officers from Nottinghamshire Police’s Tactical Support Group – a specialist search and public order team – spotted the moped while on patrol in an unmarked car 

It had recently been reported as stolen from the Birmingham area. 

The moped was followed along the A60 Mansfield Road towards Arnold at around 4.25pm yesterday (Thursday 24 September 2020).

When requested to stop the rider failed to do so.

After a short period of time the moped came to a stop in Arnot Hill Park and the rider was arrested.

A 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle, failing to stop and driving without insurance.

Inspector Chris Pearson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was excellent work by the officers concerned. Thankfully no members of the public, officers who gave chase or the suspect himself were injured.

“The man was arrested over driving offences and remains in custody.”
