A car stolen in Hucknall last week remains unfound after Nottinghamshire Police confirmed that the stolen vehicle found in Kimberley last week was not the same one.

Police were in the Kimberley area on Thursday, October 14, searching for a Ford Fiesta which had been reported as stolen and, after looking in a car park in Ruislip Close, they were able to locate and recover it.

However, the car is not the same one that was reported stolen from Charles Street in Hucknall on the same day – meaning the agony of waiting for it to hopefully be found goes on for its owner.

James Clark, 31, of Honiton Road, Aspley, has since been charged with handling stolen goods and remanded in custody.

The woman, who was detained on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle, handling stolen goods and possession of a Class B drug, has since been released under investigation.

Detective Inspector Mike Ebbins, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Cars are an essential part of people’s day-to-day life and when one is stolen it can have a huge impact on the owner.

“We are committed to investigating these incidents, aiming to return stolen vehicles to their rightful owner.

As reported by the Dispatch, the vehicle was taken in the Charles Street burglary after someone entered a property at around 2am and stole cash, as well as car keys, before making off in the vehicle from the driveway.
