Man charged in connection with city centre shop burglary

A man is due to appear in court today in connection with a break-in at a city centre electrical goods store.

Smart watches, wireless headphones and home security cameras were among the goods swiped after a display window was smashed at Mobile Lab in Long Row at around 4.30am on Saturday.

Police and city council CCTV operators were praised on Saturday by James Rowlett, area manager for the company, for their teamwork after an arrest was made within minutes of the burglary.

“It was great work by everyone involved to get it sorted so we are as happy as we can be in the circumstances,” he said.

Police recovered a number of items following the incident and later charged a 41-year-old man, of no fixed address, with commercial burglary in connection with the incident.

He is due to appear before Nottingham Magistrates’ Court today.

Sergeant Paul Whitehead, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We are committed to reducing burglary and work very closely with partners including the city council and local businesses to tackle crime. It is always pleasing when we are able to make a quick arrest and charge after incidents.”
