A man is due in court over a 24-hour spree of burglaries and a ram raid attack.
It comes after officers investigated five reported burglaries committed at two addresses in Bestwood, two homes in Old Basford, and a further property in Arnold on 7 November.
In one of these cases, a car was stolen from the victim’s driveway which was later found extensively damaged after it had been abandoned. A computer had also been taken from the address.
Items stolen from another of the targeted properties included a laptop, mobile phone, and a watch.
Officers also carried out inquiries into another reported burglary, in Bestwood, which happened between 20 and 23 October. The victims returned home to find their van had gone missing from the road outside their home.
In addition, during the early hours of 21 October, it was reported a van had reversed through the front of a shop in Capenwray Gardens, Bestwood, before one of the tills, cigarettes, and alcohol were stolen from the premises.
On 7 November, police were called to a report of a man breaking into an address in Bestwood.
Officers were on scene within minutes and a suspect was detained nearby thanks to the efforts of a tenacious police dog and handler.
Kayne Palmer, aged 31, of Cook Drive, Ilkeston, is due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court today (Thursday 16 November 2023) charged with six counts of burglary and further counts of attempted burglary, aggravated vehicle taking, driving while disqualified and driving without insurance.
Inspector Julian Eminson-Ferry, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:
“Thankfully, as a result of good police teamwork, this costly crime spree was brought to an end.
“Nottinghamshire Police treats crimes of this nature extremely seriously and will always do everything it can to seek justice for victims.
"I am pleased we were able to secure charges regarding these serious matters and we now await the outcome through the courts.”
