A ‘brazen burglar’ stole medication, cash, and a mobile phone from a Nottinghamshire family’s home while they slept.
The intruder entered a property on Farrendale Close in Forest Town, at some point between 5am and 7am on October 7.
It is believed the burglar squeezed through a window as the family lay in bed.
The crime only came to light after a passer-by spotted a car boot was open.
A 24-year-old man was yesterday arrested on suspicion of burglary.
Detective Sergeant Andy Hall from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a very brazen burglary where someone has entered the family’s home while they were inside asleep.
“Burglaries can have a profound impact on victims. Not only are they left without certain items, which can be physically or sentimentally valuable, but it is also a complete breach of privacy in the place that most people consider their safe space.
“Reports of burglary will always be dealt with thoroughly and treated seriously. Officers have remained committed to this investigation and as a result we have now arrested a man as part of their enquiries.
“Our investigation continues and we would ask anyone who saw the incident or anyone with any information to contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident 82 of 19 October 2020.”
