Police have charged an Eastwood man with a raft of offences including allegations of robbery and aggravated burglary in the town over a nine-day period.
Shane Bright, aged 34, of Nottingham appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Friday 15 September charged with robbery, aggravated burglary with intent, aggravated burglary, two counts of possessing a knife/blade/sharply pointed article in a public place, assault by beating of an emergency worker, and committing an act/series of acts with intent to pervert the course of justice.
The charges relate to investigations into reported incidents in Eastwood between 1 September and 9 September 2023 and come following work by Broxtowe response officers and Nottinghamshire Police’s county burglary team.
Bright was remanded in custody and is next due to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on 13 October 2023.
Inspector Mike Ebbins, District Commander of the Broxtowe district, said: “We treat all reports of robbery, burglary, violence, and weapons with the utmost seriousness, and we will always investigate and strive to put suspects before the courts at the earliest opportunity.
“I’m pleased a suspect has now been charged in connection with these reports and we now await the outcome of this case through the courts.”
