A man has been charged after cash was reportedly stolen from a pub’s fruit machine in Sutton-in-Ashfield. Police say it followed a break-in at Picture House Pub in Fox Street on February 26.

Acting on intelligence, on March 17 officers from the force’s knife crime team approached a man in Outram Street and a foot chase is reported to have ensued. Shane Green, 31, of Woods Hill, Sutton in Ashfield, has been charged with burglary following the incident.

He has been released on conditional bail and is due to appear before Mansfield Magistrates’ Court on April 6. Sergeant Jon Groves, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Providing a visible presence on the streets also helps us to deter criminals, with stop and searches playing an invaluable role in helping us to identify and stop different crimes before they happen.

“Although the knife crime team’s main focus is keeping people safe by pursuing those who pose the greatest risk to our communities, the only way we can do this is by working proactively, while also acting on the latest intelligence, so I’d like to commend our officers for their awareness in these cases.”
