Hunt for distinctive car in burglary investigation

Posted on 16th February 2017


Did you see a distinctive green Volkswagen Scirocco in the Corporation Road area of Ilkeston last week?

We’re asking because one was seen parked outside a property that was later found to have been broken into.

The house, which is in Corporation Road, was targeted during the late afternoon on February 10.

The homeowner had returned to the property and saw the green 61 plate Scirocco parked outside. After waiting a few minutes, a man appeared and drove off in the car.

We want to trace that man and are asking for anyone who saw a green Scirocco in the area to get in touch.

Jewellery, including wedding rings and earrings, were stolen from the house.

If you saw the car, know someone who drives one, or if you have a Scirocco and were in Corporation Road that day, please call us immediately.

Anyone who can help should call DC Bali Chahal on 101, quoting reference 17000059596.
