At approximately 4.30am on Wednesday 1 February in Nottingham Road Selston, two males attempted to force the patio doors and damaged three CCTV cameras.  Nothing was taken.  An image of one possible offender can be seen on the Facebook site listed below.
Between 11.00pm on Monday 30 January and 6.00am on Tuesday 31 January in Lingford Street, Hucknall, a shed was broken into by ripping off the door hinges.  A charcoal black Martin Attack Trail Bike was stolen.
Between 7.45am on Monday 30 and 6.00am on Tuesday 31 January, in Beardall Street, Hucknall, the doors of a garden shed were forced but nothing was taken.
Between 10.30pm on Monday 30 and 7.00am on Tuesday 31 January in Beardall Street, Hucknall, a fence panel was removed to gain entry to a garden.  An unlocked shed was entered but nothing was taken.
Between 4.30am and 5.00am on Tuesday 31 January in Dukes Court, Hucknall, the hinges of a shed door were unscrewed to gain access.  We do not know if anything was stolen at this time.
At approximately 4.30am on Tuesday 31 January in Dukes Court, Hucknall, an attempt was made to force a shed door.
We have been told by the victims in Both Beardall Street and Dukes Court that sheds at other properties were also attacked but not reported.  It is really important that thefts are reported so that we know what has been stolen.  If we arrest a suspect and recover items but do not know they are stolen we cannot take any action.
Please make sure your sheds are well secured with good strong hasp and staples bolted to your sheds.  Use bolts or clutch screws to secure your door hinges.  Mark all your tools and equipment with your postcode and house number, it won’t prevent them being taken, but it does make them easier to trace and return if recovered.  It also makes them more difficult for the thieves to move on.   
Theft of motor vehicle
 Between 5.00pm on Wednesday 25 January and 9.30am on Thursday 26 January at a storage facility on West Street, Hucknall, three Ford Transit vans and a VW Caddy were stolen from the yard.
At Approximately 9.15pm on Monday 30 January in Thorneywood Avenue, Kirkby Woodhouse, an unchained blue Honda Club 90 motor bike was stolen.

Theft from motor vehicle
