Man charged over Belper break-in

A 36-year-old has been charged in connection with a burglary in Belper.

Overnight between January 7 and January 8 a front door on Derby Road was smashed.

Jewellery, perfume and hair straighteners were among the items which were then taken from inside.

Following months of investigation a man, who lives in the Ripley area, has now been arrested and formally charged with burglary, said a police spokesman.

He is to appear at North East Derbyshire and Dales Magistrates’ Court.
