Hucknall enjoyed a relatively crime-free week in the seven days leading to Thursday September 3.

Only two burglaries and one incident of criminal damage to a motor vehicle were reported to police.

A Voodoo Bantu mountain bike was stolen from an unlocked outbuilding sometime between Monday 24 and Friday August 28 in Broxtowe Drive, Hucknall.

Between 9.30am and 4.45pm on Thursday August 27 at The Vines, Whyburn Lane, Hucknall, a property was entered via a secure side window and an iPad and jewellery were stolen.

Inspector Nick Butler said: “Insecure doors and windows to the rear of a property are much more likely to be used as means of entry, as the front of a building is usually seen from the road.

“If you have a gate leading to the back of your house please keep it locked. Always check that all windows and doors are secure before leaving your home.”

Between 11pm on Tuesday September 1 and 9am on Wednesday September 2 on Christchurch Road, Hucknall, the back window of a Ford Focus car, parked on a driveway, was smashed.

Anyone with information about these incidents should contact Jon Pheasant, Intelligence Officer for Hucknall, by e-mail at or you can call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
