Images released of suspected stolen items found in the South Normanton and Pinxton area

Posted on 7th February 2018

Do any of the items in the pictures belong to you? They were found in the Broadmeadows area and we think they may have been stolen.

There has been a series of thefts from vehicles in the same area, taking place between Tuesday, January 30 and Friday, February 2, but no one has reported these items missing.

The incidents have mostly been reported on The Cine, Storthfield Way, Birchen Holme, The Sycamores and The Brockwell.

One man was arrested and later charged with one theft from a vehicle, five attempted thefts from vehicles, five counts of vehicle interference and one attempted burglary.

Christopher Howell, 29, of Oak Close, Pinxton, appeared at Chesterfield Justice Centre on Tuesday, February 6 and was jailed for 17 weeks.

PCSO Lucy Naughton of the South Normanton and Pinxton Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “If you do think any of these items belong to you, please get in touch, as we would like to find out where they have come from and hopefully return them to their rightful owners.

“Following these thefts, I think it’s just worth a reminder to people to make sure they make sure their vehicle is locked and secure whenever they leave it parked, and to remove any valuables to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of crime.”
