Nottingham casino burglar who hid behind slot machines jailed

A burglar who was found hiding behind slot machines after breaking into a Nottingham casino has been jailed.

Officers attended the business, in Main Street, Bulwell, around 11.45 pm on Friday (10 May) following reports an intruder was still inside.

Brooklyn Anthony was discovered curled up inside a cupboard behind the games machine area.

When officers later reviewed CCTV footage he was seen lurking about inside the casino, kicking doors, shaking a change machine and trying to open cupboards.

He was jailed for four months.

Police Constable Simon Jones, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“Officers who attended the scene and those who have investigated the incident should be commended for their rapid and efficient response to this break-in.

“Anthony was heavily intoxicated when officers found him at the scene of this burglary and initially gave a false name.

“We do not underestimate the impact burglaries of this nature can have on businesses so I’m pleased Anthony has been put behind bars just three days after the offence was committed.”
