Three men, aged 46, 38 and 33 and a female aged 30 were arrested on suspicion of burglary after officers executed warrants at addresses in Carlton, Cinderhill and Bulwell earlier today, Friday 7th December 2018.

They remain in police custody and searches are on-going.

The arrests follow the theft of the Portland Tiara and a diamond brooch from The Portland Collection Gallery on The Welbeck Estate in Worksop between 9.45pm and 10pm on Tuesday 20th November 2018.

Detective Inspector Gayle Hart said:

This case has involved multiple lines of enquiry and we’re continuing to work hard on the case to secure justice for the victims.

“The stolen property hasn’t been recovered and we still want to hear from anyone who knows where the items might be. We also want to hear from anyone who has any information about a silver Audi RS5 Quattro, registration number KY61 USJ, which we believe was involved in the burglary.

“It was stolen from the Phoenix Park Park and Ride tram stop, Millennium Way East, Cinderhill, Nottingham, on Friday 2 November 2018. It was found abandoned and burnt out in Cross Lane, Blidworth, about half-an-hour after the burglary on Tuesday 20 November 2018.

"Did you see this car in the area around the time of the burglary or have dash-cam footage of it? Did you see anyone in the car?

"We're keen to trace this vehicle's movements before the burglary so encourage anyone who saw it or who has any information to get in touch with us as soon as possible.”
