Man Charged After Nottinghamshire Robberies
Households in the East Midlands might be considering updating their home security with help from a Nottinghamshire locksmith after hearing the news that a man has been charged for burglaries in the area.
Nottinghamshire Police reported that Robert Childerley appeared at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court earlier this week (November 26th) in connection with several robberies. These included incidents in Forest Road, Skegby, and The Woodend Pub in Huthwaite, as well as on Littlemoor Lane, Newton in Derbyshire, all of which occurred in the last week.
The 26-year-old was charged with two counts of possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence, two counts of robbery, two counts of attempted robbery, and aggravated vehicle taking.
Detective Sergeant Mark Shaw said: “Nottinghamshire Police is committed to tackling and reducing robbery and having a positive impact on community safety.”
He added: “Robbery is a serious crime, particularly when there are firearms involved, and I would like to reassure the community that we are doing everything we can to disrupt and prevent people from committing these types of offences.”
In addition to Mr Childerley, a 29-year-old man was arrested. He was later released on police bail pending further investigation.
