Officers at North Yorkshire Police have put a suspected burglar before the courts within just 24 hours of the crimes being reported.
Police got reports of burglaries at two businesses in Harrogate town centre yesterday morning.
The offender is believed to have smashed windows and entered the buildings several hours earlier.
Cash and high-value items were taken.
Police from Harrogate’s response team and the investigation hub launched an immediate investigation.
It resulted in a local man in his 30s being arrested, remanded in custody and scheduled to appear in Harrogate Magistrates' Court today (Tuesday, 17 January).
A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “Just 24 hours after receiving reports of these burglaries, a suspect was in custody and was scheduled to appear before the courts.
“While some investigations take a considerable amount of time to complete, it’s rewarding and reassuring for victims when we can conclude an investigation so quickly.
“Having your home or business burgled is a deeply unpleasant experience, and we work around the clock to prevent it happening and bring offenders to justice.”
