Police arrested a man in Heanor after police five warrants were executed as part of an investigation into stolen goods and money laundering.

Officers conducted the warrants yesterday (Wednesday, July 17) and detained a 35-year-old man at a house on Claramount Road and a 31-year-old man on Brunel Avenue, Newthorpe, on suspicion of conspiracy to commit theft and money laundering. They have been questioned and released on bail pending further inquiries.

As part of the investigation, officers also carried out warrants at three more houses in Eastwood and Giltbrook, recovering several ‘high-value’ items of property. Anyone with information is urged to call police on 101.

Detective Inspector Hayley Barnett said: “We rely on members of the public to be our eyes and ears in the community.

“Do you have a neighbour who seems to be living beyond their means? Are they unemployed but drive expensive cars and take luxury holidays?

“These people could be living off the proceeds of crime and I would urge you to contact us if you have any suspicions or concerns.”
