A Leicestershire address is among four properties to have been raided by police as part of a crime crackdown in rural communities in two counties. Three people have been questioned as part of the cross-border investigation.

Leicestershire Police conducted the warrant last Friday (May 13) at an address in Hose, near Melton, as part of wider efforts with Nottinghamshire Police to crack down on rural crime. The Leicestershire address was one of four to be searched last week, reports NottinghamshireLive.

The coordinated effort between the two forces saw a number of stolen items recovered from the addresses, including power tools, car parts and a horse trailer. Three people were also questioned by police relating to the thefts.

No arrests were made at the Hose address, but officers in Nottinghamshire confirmed that they had made arrests on their patch. These followed the execution of warrants at properties in Occupation Lane in East Bridgford, Wodehouse Avenue in Gotham, and Devon Road in Newark.

In a statement, the force said a 34-year-old man was arrested in Gotham on suspicion of conspiracy to steal and possession of criminal property, while another 34-year-old man was arrested in Newark address on suspicion of conspiracy to steal and possession of offensive weapons. Both have since been released on bail.
