A man has been remanded in custody after being charged following a burglary at DIY store in Arnold.
Craig Fallon, 36, of no fixed address, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court today (Monday, January 18 2021) charged with burglary.
He is next due to appear at the same court on January 27, 2021.
It comes after police were notified of an intruder alarm being activated at the Homebase store at Madford Retail Park in Daybrook yesterday afternoon. A fire exit at the store had reportedly been forced open.
Officers swiftly arrived and within minutes of receiving the report they arrested a man nearby on suspicion of burglary.
Inspector Chris Pearson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a great piece of team work where officers quickly responded and attended, detained a suspect and were able to secure charges.
“I hope this goes a long way to reassuring residents and businesses that we take burglary very seriously and that anyone believed to be committing such offences will be dealt robustly by the force.”
