This follows the theft of a wallet from an unlocked car parked in Redfield Way, Nottingham, on 26 November, and the fraudulent use of a bank card at nearby shops a short time later.

Morgan was remanded in custody until his next appearance on 5 January 2024 at Nottingham Crown Court.

Detective Sergeant James Hirst, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“I hope people living and working in this part of the city are reassured by the swift and robust police response to the robbery.

“Officers recovered the vehicle and stolen items and have placed a suspect before the courts at the earliest opportunity.”
