Detective Sergeant Joanne Eaton, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“We will always investigate every report of theft and burglary we receive as we understand the huge impact they can have on families and individuals.

“Preventing and reducing these crimes is a key priority for Nottinghamshire Police, which is why we have two dedicated burglary teams across the force, tasked with solving these offences and stopping them from happening in the first place.

“I am pleased the suspect has now appeared in court but our investigation continues.

“Can I please ask that anyone with information give us a call on 101, quoting the incident number 655 of October 5 2022.”
