Arrests made in connection with burglaries from Browns in Marshall’s Yard, Gainsborough

Police have arrested two people in connection with a series of break-ins and thefts at Browns Department store after receiving intelligence from the community.

A 35-year-old woman and a 36-year-old man have been arrested on suspicion of burglary this morning and remain in police custody where they are being interviewed.

Police continue to appeal for information about the incidents.

The department store in Marshall’s Yard, Gainsborough has been targeted by thieves six times since the start of the year, with offenders taking a variety of expensive items which are still unaccounted for. We believe that these stolen goods may be offered for sale to the public by those responsible.

Brands include Lacoste, L’Oreal, Chanel, Ted Baker and Ralph Lauren.

Detective Sergeant Michael Head from Gainsborough CID said: “These break-ins and thefts are not a small thing; this is an important store for the local area, and every time they are targeted there is an impact on staff and the community. There is a financial cost to repair the damage each time, as well as the cost of the goods stolen.

“We are treating this as a priority, and we hope that our appeal to the local community will make people aware of the nature of goods potentially circulating and lead to the identification of the offenders. Specialist crime prevention teams are working closely with the store on their security, and we are also carrying out regular passing patrols.”

We are also keen to receive information which could help us identify the suspects, such as intelligence relating to potential offenders, photographs or locations, from our local communities.

The latest incident took place between 4.30am and 5am on 19 May.

We’d appeal for anyone who may have dashcam or Go-Pro footage which may have captured any of the offenders during the incidents or in the time just prior or after to come forward. As well as Marshalls Yard, footage could be relevant from Marshalls Rise, Spital Terrace, Cross Street and Tennyson Street during that time frame.
