A 26-year-old man from Nottingham has been arrested in connection with a spate of break-ins in houses, garages and sheds in Kislingbury.
Eight houses were broken into in the village overnight between Tuesday, November 26 and Wednesday, November 27, and attempts were made to loot other homes, sheds and garages. Jewellery and cash was stolen.
In some cases, entry was gained via unlocked doors, while officers say “an instrument” was also used to try and prise open doors and window frames.
A police spokesman revealed today that a man was taken into custody at the Criminal Justice Centre in Northampton but has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
Sergeant Mark Osborne, of Towcester police, said: We think the break-ins occurred between 1.30am and 5.30am and we would like anyone who was out and about in the village during those early hours to get in touch.
“It is possible that there were shift workers, dog walkers and delivery drivers out and about who may have valuable information for our investigation.”
