The 50-year-old has also been charged with three counts of fraud by false representation. He appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on February 12 and was remanded into custody.

Peter Boyd, of Argyle Street, Radford, has been charged with a burglary in Forest Road West, Radford, in which a laptop, mobile phone, scooter, wallet, tablet and jewellery were stolen.

The 34-year-old appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on February 19 and was bailed with conditions to reappear at a later date.

A 39-year-old man was also arrested for the same burglary and has been bailed pending further enquiries.

Mark Martindale, of Gregory Boulevard, has been charged with a burglary in Lucknow Avenue, Mapperley, in which a garage was broken into on February 8.

The 40-year-old has also been charged with a burglary in Montpellier Road, Dunkirk, in which a watch, camera, money and alcohol were stolen on February 13.

He appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on February 19 and was remanded into custody.

Inspector Paul Ferguson, of the city central neighbourhood policing team, said: “These developments follow a significant amount of work by the neighbourhood policing team, dedicated city burglary team and colleagues on CID.

“A number of the offences were as a result of properties being left insecure and so I would again urge students and residents to check their door and window locks are working correctly and remember to make sure they keep their doors and windows locked at all times, especially if their rooms are on the ground floor.

“Students living in multi-occupancy properties should work together to ensure they all take responsibility for keeping their home secure.

“Make sure that valuables, including cash, phones or electrical items, are kept out of sight to any passers-by and the keys to your property and vehicles are kept in a safe place out of sight and well away from your letterbox.”

Two men, aged 35 and 38, were also arrested on Tuesday (February 22) following two burglaries in the Arboretum area.
