A couple has been arrested and charged after an alleged car theft conspiracy in Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire. Isaac Allen and Katie Lack were apprehended by Nottinghamshire Police following a thorough investigation into a series of 13 car thefts occurring between September and November this year. The stolen vehicles, taken through a combination of keyless thefts and break-ins, originated from addresses in Leicester, Wigston, Loughborough, Nottingham, Southwell, Nuthall, and Sutton-in-Ashfield.
In relation to the ongoing investigation, the authorities are also looking into an incident that took place on September 14, where a delivery driver had his car stolen in Nottingham’s Teviot Road during a drop-off.
Nottinghamshire Police revealed that Allen, residing in Kelso Gardens, Nottingham, was charged with conspiring to steal motor vehicles. Lack, residing in Brassington Close, Giltbrook, faced the same charge. The duo appeared in Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on November 16. Allen, aged 30, was remanded in custody, while 26-year-old Lack was granted conditional bail. The pair is scheduled to return to court on December 14.
Detective Sergeant James Hirst of Nottinghamshire Police emphasized the importance of tackling vehicle crime, as it causes significant inconvenience and distress to the victims. The police force collaborates with other agencies to track stolen vehicles and disrupt the criminal activities of those seeking to profit from them.
This arrest is a significant step in curbing car theft in the area, providing relief to the affected communities. With ongoing investigations and continued efforts from law enforcement, the hope is that these crimes will be deterred, ensuring the safety of residents and their possessions.
