Police investigating a break-in at a fish and chip shop have charged a suspect.
Officers attended the shop in Victoria Street, Newark, following reports it had been burgled.
After a window was smashed to gain entry, a till was ripped out from behind the counter.
Offenders then made off with cash from inside the till during the incident, which happened at around 1am on 11 June 2023.
Following an extensive investigation, suspect Wayne Cook, 53, was arrested this week and has since been charged with burglary.
Cook, of Bellmond Close, Newark, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday (26 September), where he was released on conditional bail.
He is due to return to the court on 17 October.
PC Denise Fenton, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Burglary is an incredibly invasive crime that deeply impacts people’s lives, or in the case of this incident, their livelihoods.
“We will always look to respond to and thoroughly investigate all calls of burglary we receive, so we hope this charge shows the public just how seriously we take reports of this nature.”
