Main article content
Last week (18-24 September), we made five arrests for thefts and burglaries in Nuneaton and Bedworth.
An 18-year-old and a 17-year-old from Nuneaton were arrested on suspicion of theft after allegedly stealing a bicycle valued at around £1,600.
This was after they were reportedly captured on camera leaving a property on Brights Road with the bicycle after it had been reported stolen.
Both are currently on police bail pending further investigation.
A 19-year-old from Leicester and a 17-year-old from Derby were arrested on suspicion of burglary following reports of a group of masked individuals allegedly attempting to break into properties on Wheat Street in Nuneaton.
A shed was found that had been allegedly tampered with, and the rear window of the house reportedly had cracks consistent with an attempted break-in.
Arrests of the pair were made after they were reportedly identified through CCTV.
The 19-year-old was also arrested under suspicion of perverting the course of justice after allegedly giving incorrect information to the arresting officers about their identity.
They are both on bail pending further investigation.
Finally, Cheryl Gray, a 44-year-old woman from Nuneaton, was arrested following an incident in which a woman was allegedly concealing items within a store on Newtown Road in Bedworth and attempting to leave without paying.
Officers were alerted to the behaviour and detained her on her way out of the store.
On a search, over £50 worth of goods and a knife were reportedly found in her handbag.
Cheryl has been charged with theft from a shop and possession of a knife, and will appear in Warwickshire Magistrates Court on 20 October.
Inspector Kris Shore said “We are working hard to tackle all incidents of burglary, theft, and shoplifting in Nuneaton and Bedworth.
“All five of these arrests are excellent results, made possible through public and business assistance and vigilance.”
