Police investigating a break-in at a coffee shop have charged a man with burglary.
Officers attended the drive-thru café in Winthorpe, near Newark, following the raid in the early hours of 7 January 2024.
Intruders had broken into the business by smashing a window and a till drawer was taken.
Benjamin Young, aged 45, of Mumby Close, Newark, has been charged with burglary and is due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on 22 February 2024.
He has also been charged with two shop thefts after items were stolen from a service station in Fernwood, Newark, on 30 January and from a shop on the Maltings Retail Park, Newark, on 27 January.
Detective Sergeant Clint Gloyn, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:
“We investigate business break-ins thoroughly as no one should have to arrive at their place of work and discover the place has been raided by intruders.
“We also understand the financial costs involved in repairing and cleaning up after offenders smash their way into premises.
“Officers have worked closely with the businesses involved and I hope the shop owners and the wider public are reassured by our response.”
