An operation which led to the search of a property in Daventry has uncovered more than 200 items of stolen property.
Yesterday morning (February 7), response officers entered the house in Ericsson Close and once inside, found a large quantity of items which are believed to have been stolen including tools, jewellery, electronic items and golf clubs.
The search came about after an investigation by PC Lisa Jayes into a series of crimes in Daventry, some of which date back to the middle of 2021, involving numerous burglaries and thefts from motor vehicles.
After a thorough review of the evidence, a search through CCTV camera footage and speaking to victims of these crimes, PC Jayes found a potential link between 30 of the crimes and the Ericsson Close property.
Prior to the search, a 36-year-old man was arrested. He has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
PC Lisa Jayes, said: “I am really pleased with the results of this search. Uncovering 200 items that are believed to have been stolen is fantastic news as we can now return them to their rightful owners who will be thrilled.
“This case goes to show that we will not give up on investigations and will always seek fresh opportunities to solve them. We know how impactive tool thefts and burglaries are and I hope the community are reassured by the results we have achieved here.
“CCTV was integral to this investigation and so I would also like to take this opportunity to encourage anybody who hasn’t already to invest in CCTV, dash cam and doorbell cameras to do so if they can.
“Officers working within Daventry and the surrounding areas have increased their patrols at night-time, as well as operating in plain clothing, to provide better coverage to our local areas. This type of crime is not taken lightly and all of our officers are committed to serving the community of Daventry as effectively as they can.”
