The first burglary happened in the early hours of 6 June at a home in Main Road, Ripley, where mobile phones, a purse containing cash and bank cards, a kindle fire and fishing tackle were reported stolen.

At around 5am that day a burglar in Pentrich, attempted to gain entry to a house and car in Main Road, before stealing a bottle of milk from outside the property.

A short time later at around 5.30am bank cards, mobile phones and a Nintendo Switch rucksack were taken from another house in Main Road. The bank cards were later used for transactions in Somercotes and Selston. 

A further two burglaries were reported in Main Road on 6 and 7 June, one in which a coat and a Swiss army knife were stolen and another where a wheelbarrow was loaded with lead before being taken.

A 41-year-old man from the South Normanton area has now been arrested in connection with the incidents. He was released on Saturday (18 June) on police bail while enquiries continue.
