Man in court charged with a series of house burglaries

A man has appeared in court charged with a string of house burglaries.

Officers have been investigating 17 burglaries within the Carlton in Lindrick and Worksop areas, and also across the border in South Yorkshire – all carried out between 21 February 2022 and 2 September 2022.

Scott Shakeshaft, of Smelter Wood Avenue, Sheffield, appeared before Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Saturday (15 October) charged with conspiracy to commit burglary.

The 37-year-old was also charged with possession of Class B drugs.

He was remanded in custody and is next due to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on 18 November.

Detective Inspector Paul Lefford, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Burglaries can have a significant lasting impact on victims and often stolen property, specifically jewellery and personal family items, can never be replaced.

“I would also like to remind the public to please be vigilant against burglars, most of whom are just looking for an easy opportunity to get into people’s homes.

“Preventing and reducing burglary remains a priority for the force and, as shown with these charges, we will investigate reports and relentlessly pursue those believed to be responsible for this sort of upsetting criminality in our communities.”
