Woman charged with alleged shop theft at Victoria Retail Park

A woman has appeared in court charged in connection with a reported shop theft at a retail park.

The 44-year-old from Hyson Green appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court charged with shop theft.

It relates to an alleged theft of items from a store at the Victoria Retail Park in Netherfield.

Neighbourhood Inspector Chris Pearson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Shoplifting is not a victimless crime and can have a significant impact on retailers both financially and emotionally.

“We continue to treat shop theft seriously and our proactive work to combat this issue is ongoing including targeted operations in hot-spot areas, increased patrols and working closely with businesses and Gedling Borough Council to reduce retail crime.

“We are continuing to support retailers and provide crime prevention advice and I’d like to reassure people that we will not tolerate this type of offending and will always take robust action.”
