Man charged after burglar floods house by leaving the taps on

A 29-year-old man has been charged after a house was broken into and extensively damaged.

Two ground floor windows were smashed at a property in Bainbridge Road, Warsop in the early hours of 10 April.

It is believed the house was flooded after some taps were left on in the kitchen and a number of items had been damaged including two televisions, a pair of glasses and a necklace.

A 29-year-old man from Mansfield has since been charged with criminal damage, burglary and possession of cannabis.

He has since been bailed with conditions and is set to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on 25 June 2021.

Detective Constable Ben Grainger, of Nottinghamshire’s criminal investigation department, said: “We won’t tolerate the invasion of another person’s property.

“The violence that was displayed by the offender in this case by smashing up several items is completely unacceptable.

“We have been carrying out thorough enquiries since the incident was reported to us which led to a man being charged in connection with the offence.

“The victim was left shaken following the ordeal and we have been working with them and endeavour to ensure they are supported.”
