Nottingham police burglary team secures multiple charges against suspect

A dedicated burglary team has secured multiple charges against a suspect after an extensive investigation into offences.

Inquiries were carried out, including trawling through CCTV footage, after it was reported an intruder entered a property in Three Tuns Road, Eastwood, on Sunday (14 April 2024), an attempted house break-in happened in Brunel Avenue, Eastwood, on Monday (15 April), and tools were stolen from a van in Brunel Avenue, Newthorpe, overnight between Sunday and Monday.

Response officers on patrol in Eastwood arrested a suspect on Tuesday morning after conducting area searches.

A 49-year-old man from Eastwood, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Thursday (18 April 2024) charged with burglary, attempted burglary, and theft from a motor vehicle.

The charges were successfully secured as a result of extensive investigative work by the Newark burglary team.

He was remanded in custody until his next appearance at Nottingham Crown Court on 16 May 2024.

Police Constable Liam O’Kane, of the Newark burglary team, said: “Investigating burglaries and supporting victims is a key priority for the force because we understand the impact this type of invasive crime can have on people’s lives.

“I’m pleased a suspect has been charged and remanded in connection with these alleged offences and we now await the outcome of this case through the courts.”

Cracking down on burglary has been a local policing priority in the Broxtowe borough since the start of the year.

Ongoing work to tackle the issue has included increased hot-spot patrols, daily targeted arrests of offenders, investigative ownership by the local CID team and crime prevention advice to victims.

This targeted police activity has resulted in several suspects being arrested and charged.
