Man charged after car stolen in Nottinghamshire burglary

Detectives investigating a burglary that led to a car being stolen have charged a suspect.

A set of car keys were taken after intruders broke into a house in Digby Court, Mansfield.

They were then used to open and drive away a locked car parked outside in the early hours of Wednesday (4 January).

The stolen vehicle was seen by officers soon afterwards in Debdale Lane, Mansfield, by officers, with the driver then ignoring requests to pull over.

After a short pursuit, the car was brought to a halt in Chesterfield Road North, Mansfield and a suspect was arrested.

A 35-year-old man appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Thursday (5 January) charged with burglary and failing to stop.

He was also charged with driving without a licence and driving with no insurance.

He was remanded in custody and is next due to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on 2 February 2023.

Detective Constable Dave Smith, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Burglary is an incredibly serious offence that can sadly have a really detrimental impact on people’s lives.

“Everyone should be able to feel safe in their own home, which is why the force is so committed to ensuring anyone suspected of violating this rule is put before the courts.

“I’m pleased that as a result of our inquiries, a suspect has now been charged in connection with this case and remanded in custody.”
