    A man has been arrested last week for allegedly breaking into a convenience store in a Nottinghamshire village by ripping off roof tiles to get inside. 

    Police said alleged burglars had removed roof tiles from the Premier convenience store in Turner Lane, Boughton, near Ollerton, before dropping down into the shop at around 11.35 pm on December 30, 2023.

    E-cigarettes and wine were said to have been stolen from the shelves before they escaped through the gap in the roof, Nottinghamshire Police added. Officers launched an investigation after the break-in, studying CCTV footage and carrying out other local inquiries.

    As part of this investigation a 45-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of burglary on Friday, January 12.

    Sergeant Christian Hurley, of Nottinghamshire Police, said, “We have been working hard to trace the offenders after this break-in as we are fully aware of the impact this sort of crime can have on local businesses.

    “We will always offer a robust response when community stores are targeted like this and their shelves ransacked. This arrest is an important step in the investigation but we still want to hear from anyone who has any information, CCTV, dashcam or doorbell footage which could help with our inquiries.”

    Police have asked anyone with any information to call police on 101, quoting incident number 721 of December 30, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
