Detectives have charged a man following a spate of burglaries in which PlayStation consoles were stolen.

Three properties in Radford were targeted within four days earlier this month.

Two PlayStation 4 consoles were stolen from a house in Waverley Street, along with controllers and two games, in the early hours of 11 July.

Another PS4 console was taken from a house in Gedling Grove three days later, along with a laptop.

On the same day, a PlayStation 3 console was reported stolen from a second house in Waverley Street, along with a Hisense TV and a gold ring.

David Teevan, of Forest Road West, Radford, has been charged with three counts of burglary.

The 41-year-old appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on 17 July and is next due to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on August 7.

Detective Constable Tim Townsend, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We take burglary very seriously and will always look to take action against those who commit such offences.

“It is an appalling crime but it is important to note burglary rates are falling in Nottinghamshire. Over five fewer homes a day were burgled in Nottinghamshire in the year to 31 December 2020, compared to the previous year - a drop of 1,978 burglaries or 25 per cent.

“The force has two dedicated burglary teams operating across the city and county who are supported in tackling burglary by response and neighbourhood officers, as well as a burglary enforcement Special Constable team.

“Our message is simple: burglary will not be tolerated and will do everything we can as a force to catch offenders and bring them to justice.”
