A suspected shoplifter has been charged in connection with a series of thefts and ordered to stay away from shops.
Alex O’Sullivan was arrested in the Chesterton Drive area of Worksop after extensive work by officers to investigate reported raids at shops in Kilton Hill and Prospect Precinct, allegedly committed between 18 September 2023 and 6 October 2023.
O’Sullivan, aged 32, of no fixed address, was subsequently charged with six counts of shop theft.
He was subsequently released on bail, with conditions not to attend two stores in Kilton Hill and Prospect Precinct or attend three other addresses in Worksop.
He is due to appear at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court on 31 October 2023.
Inspector Hayley Crawford, district commander for Bassetlaw, said:
“Shoplifting offences can have a significant impact on local businesses and are taken very seriously by Nottinghamshire Police.
“I would like to reassure our local retailers that we will continue to proactively target those who commit offences of this nature, and we will continue to support our local businesses to help protect their properties and drive down shop theft in their areas.”
