Recovery of items from Derby theft

12 September 2012Written by ATG Reporter

Several items stolen from Derby Museum and Art Gallery’s storage facility have been recovered and two arrests have been made.

They were found after a dealer in Birmingham called Derbyshire police following publicity surrounding the incident, when 1000 items including coins, medals and watches worth about £53,000 were taken sometime between May 2 and June 19.

Two men - aged 27 and 29, from Spondon, near Derby - have been arrested on suspicion of burglary. They were interviewed and released on bail pending further inquiries.
