Arrest Made After Radio Station Burglary

A 38 year old man has been arrested after a burglary at Black Country Radio's studios earlier this month.

Officers were called to the station's premises on the morning of Friday 9th September after reports of a theft, discovered when The Fizzogs arrived to present their breakfast show. In a statement, West Midlands Police said:

"Officers were called to the Black Country Radio studios earlier this month, following reports of a burglary that happened sometime between 11:25pm on September 8th and 6:40am on September 9th.

"Following an investigation, a 38-year-old man was arrested from an address in Stourbridge yesterday (20th September) on suspicion of burglary. He is currently in custody, helping police with their enquiries."

In a statement, Black Country Radio Chief Executive Alex Totney said: "We note the announcement from West Midlands Police regarding the arrest of an individual in connection with the recent burglary at our studios. We are very grateful for the effort and co-operation we have received from the force in their investigation so far.

"As this is an ongoing police matter, it would be inappropriate for us to comment further at this stage."
