Stolen goods worth more than £3 million recovered in North Lincolnshire

Thousands of stolen items recovered

Stolen goods worth more than £3 million have been recovered by police who executed a warrant at a business premises in North Lincolnshire.

It follows an investigation into two burglaries which happened at Chicco Artsana in Sutton-In-Ashfield on May 29th and 30th. During the burglaries, over 3,000 units of baby and child products, worth around £250,000, were stolen including pushchairs, baby chairs, cribs and child car seats.

Nottinghamshire police also arrested six people on suspicion of burglary, including four men and a woman from the North Lincolnshire area, and a 33-year-old man from Leeds. They have since been released pending further investigation.

As well as almost 1,700 of the stolen Chicco products, officers also recovered thousands of other stolen items including laptops, consumables and lorries of various sizes and also located a significant cannabis grow.

A number of warrants have also been executed in the Leeds area. A number of arrests were made and a large volume of property recovered. Officers and forensic experts from both Nottinghamshire and Humberside Police are now working together on the operation.

The case is fast paced, linking in criminality from across four Force areas. The investigation, although complex, is progressing positively and I’d like to thank Chicco Artsana, West Yorkshire Police and Humberside Police for their assistance.
