Police today revealed they have arrested one of ‘Arnold‘s most wanted’ after he was found hiding in a wardrobe at an address in Birmingham.
Officers from Operation Reacher dashed to the property in a bid to locate Shaun Kingham.
Police have been on the hunt for Kingham since the summer after he skipped bail earlier this year.
He had been charged with burglary at a restaurant in the town centre.
A police spokesman said: “Shaun Kingham was found hiding in a wardrobe and arrested after he attempted to skip bail.
Operation Reacher officers dashed to Birmingham today after earlier arresting a man in Gedling they suspected of being involved in a burglary during which a number of off-road motorbikes and quadbikes were stolen.
The spokesman said: “The suspect is now at the new custody suite awaiting questioning.”
The 45-year-old was re-bailed with conditions to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on a future date to be fixed.
Inspector Chris Pearson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This arrest reflects the hard work being done by officers and the Op Reacher team to bring Kingham back to court.
“We understand that burglaries can have a big impact on people’s livelihoods not only emotionally but also impacting income and businesses and it remains a priority and we are working closely with the council on this as a local priority for Gedling and the surrounding areas.”
