Man charged after burglary at a Nottinghamshire pub

A man has been charged after police officers swiftly acted on information around a reported burglary.

Officers from Nottinghamshire Police’s knife crime team were out on patrol on 17 March 2022 and were aware of a reported break-in at a pub a month earlier.

Following intelligence around the burglary at the Picture House Pub in Fox Street, Sutton-in Ashfield, they approached a man in Outram Street, Sutton in Ashfield, and a foot chase is reported to have ensued.

Cash was reportedly stolen from a fruit machine during the alleged break-in on 26 February 2022.

Shane Green, 31, of Woods Hill, Sutton in Ashfield, has been charged with burglary following the incident.

He has been released on conditional bail and is due to appear before Mansfield Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday 6 April 2022.

Two teenagers were also arrested by the knife crime team for a range of different alleged offences after a car they were in was pulled over during a routine stop and search.

A quantity of class A drugs, a small amount of cannabis, cash and a mobile phone were all seized by officers, following the effective stop and search in Barnes Crescent, Sutton in Ashfield, on 15 March.

An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs, taking a car without consent and driving without a licence or insurance.

A 17-year-old boy was also arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

They have both been released under investigation.

Sergeant Jon Groves, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Providing a visible presence on the streets also helps us to deter criminals, with stop and searches playing an invaluable role in helping us to identify and stop different crimes before they happen.

“Although the knife crime team’s main focus is keeping people safe by pursuing those who pose the greatest risk to our communities, the only way we can do this is by working proactively, while also acting on the latest intelligence, so I’d like to commend our officers for their awareness in these cases.”
