Spring Lane, Farnsfield.

Jewellery was stolen from a house in Alexander Road after a window was smashed, while ornaments, jewellery and watches were taken from a house on Station Lane, after a window was forced open.

The burglaries took place on September 30 last year.

Now, more than three months’ later, a 20-year-old man has been arrested in connection with them.

PC Joel Hughes, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Burglary is an awful, invasive crime which can make people feel unsafe in their own homes.”
