Suspect charged after shop windows smashed and alcohol stolen

Police investigating a burglary at a food store have charged a man.

Officers responded to reports that the shop’s alarm was going off just before 10.25 pm on Friday (13 January).

On arrival at the store in Bramcote Lane, Chilwell, responding cops were met with glass covering the floor and reports of alcohol being stolen from inside the shop.

Their quick actions then led them to make an arrest a short time later.

Philip Chapman, aged 30, of no fixed address, has been charged with burglary other than a dwelling.

Sergeant Paul Crofts, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“Burglary offences bring misery to all involved especially the victims whether that’s a business or family home.

“The impact they have on businesses can be devastating and affect someone’s livelihood, finances, and mental health.

“We do and continue to take a strong stance on any burglaries reported to us and will always do our best to get to the bottom of exactly what’s happened.

“In this case, our officers were quick to respond and carry out a fast investigation.

“I am pleased we’ve now been able to charge a suspect in relation to this case.”
