A 24-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of burglary after a property rigged with spy cameras by police – dubbed a ‘capture house’ – was burgled.
The house, containing a range of tempting goods, was set up in Lowerhouses on April 11.
It has not been confirmed what property was taken.
The woman has been bailed pending further inquiries.
In another case, a 17-year-old boy has been given a 120-hour community punishment and ordered to pay £100 costs after breaking into a capture house in Birkby on December 17 last year.
He was convicted of burglary and handling stolen goods.
Huddersfield was one of the first areas in West Yorkshire to use capture houses when police launched the initiative last year.
The county has disproportionately high figures for burglary.
Carl Miller, 22, of Ruskin Grove, Sheepridge, was the first person in Huddersfield to be sentenced as a result of a capture house burglary.
He was given a 12-month conditional discharge last April after admitting handling stolen goods. He had bought a television stolen from a capture house on Riddings Rise.
Kirklees Detective Inspector Jim Griffiths said four houses had been set up in the past six months.
“These could be anywhere in the district and should serve as a wake up call to those involving themselves in such crimes,” he said.
“We will not tolerate it and you will be caught.”
He added: “Anyone who breaks in is recorded with the latest detection technology and exposed to a liquid based property marking solution through which they can later be identified.
“This is an extremely useful method of identifying burglary offences.
“The capture houses can be deployed anywhere and particularly in places which are known burglary hotspots.”
