A man from Ventnor has been arrested – and released without charge – on suspicion of burglary and obstructing a police officer in the town.
Hampshire Constabulary says the 50-year-old remains under investigation.
Police are investigating a break-in at the Hambrough Hotel early in September. They say a small amount of cash was taken from the office.
On Monday evening, officers were called to Ventnor High Street and were filmed apparently detaining a man, along with help from members of the public.
