Man’s home broken into while on holiday

Two suspects have appeared in court after a man’s home was broken into while he was on holiday.

Sentimental ornaments were stolen from the address along with a drill, battery charger, and toaster. Other items within the property had been moved.

The victim found a living room window smashed and reported the incident to police.

Lines of inquiry led to police making arrests in connection with the break-in which happened in Southwell Road West, Mansfield, between 12 August and 15 August 2023.

Aidan Howard, aged 19, of Commercial Gate, Mansfield, and Emma Crowder, aged 40, of no fixed address, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Monday (21 August 2023) charged with burglary.
