Man charged after thefts from Nottingham hotel

A man has been charged following a series of burglaries and thefts at a hotel.

Items including cash, perfume, airpods and an iPhone were reported stolen from three rooms at Britannia Hotel, in St James’ Street, Nottingham, between 5pm and 7pm on Sunday 2 January.

Mohammed Al-Attar, of no fixed address, has been charged with burglary and theft, as well as possession of cannabis.

The 24-year-old is due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court today.

Nottinghamshire Police’s ongoing proactive work to combat burglary, which includes two dedicated teams covering the city and county, has led to a 38 per cent drop in burglaries across Nottinghamshire compared to two years ago, with crime already going down before the Covid pandemic.

Nottinghamshire Police also recently appointed a specialist burglary reduction officer to help prevent offences from happening.

Detective Sergeant Lee Cattell, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “I’d like to reassure our communities that we are doing all we can to further reduce burglary and to bring offenders to justice.

“We also need the public to carry on working with us and follow crime prevention advice as we want to do everything we can to prevent burglaries from happening in the first place, such as locking doors and windows.”
