Bottesford NHW Alert: Police praise public help in burglary investigation

NHW constantly encourages residents to report suspicious activity to the police. A vigilant community can make a significant contribution to the fight against crime as demonstrated by the following release issued by Leicestershire Police:

Leicestershire Police has praised a member of the public for helping in the hunt for two burglary suspects.

The member of the public made a 999 call as two men were leaving a house in Braddon Road, Loughborough, which was followed by the sound of the house’s burglar alarm going off.

Within 30 minutes officers stopped a car and arrested two men, aged 24 and 37. They have each been given police bail while further enquiries are carried out.

The incident happened around noon on Monday, February 12.

Detective Chief Inspector Rich Ward said: “These arrests were particularly pleasing given the excellent early call to the police from a vigilant member of the public.

“This then triggered an excellent response from local officers leading to the two arrests.

“I would like to reiterate my message that an early call to the police when suspicious behaviour is witnessed can make all the difference by preventing crime and leading to the apprehension of suspects.

This incident reflects the message of our ‘Seen it? Report it!’ campaign. If you see anything suspicious please call us straight away – we will be happy to check out any well-intentioned call that we receive.”
