West Bridgford man charged after 12 incidents of shop windows smashed

A man has been charged as part of an investigation into a series of windows being smashed.

The properties of several businesses in West Bridgford were damaged, including in Central Avenue, Tudor Square and Priory Road.

Officers are investigating the string of offences, which are believed to have taken place between 14 February and 4 November 2021 and arrested a man on Friday (5 November).

Forty-one-year-old Said Ferradji, of Albert Road, West Bridgford, has since been charged with 12 counts of criminal damage.

He was also charged with theft following reports that a bank card and statement had been stolen from a property in Albert Road.

He was bailed with conditions and is due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 9 December.

Sergeant Sarah Merrall, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We are very proud that West Bridgford is home to a number of independent and larger businesses.

“They are a really important part of the area’s economy and they have a really positive impact on serving the local community and bringing people to the area, so it is absolutely appalling when we hear they have been targeted and subjected to crime.

“It often causes a significant amount of inconvenience and causes a loss of earnings for the business and the owners, so it has a very profound impact.

“We are committed to tackling this type of crime whenever it is reported and ensuring that West Bridgford continues to be a safe place for both residents and businesses, and a man has now been charged as part of our investigation.

“Our enquiries continue and we would continue to encourage anyone with information, or anyone with concerns about crime in the local area, to get in touch directly with us on 101.”
