A GRIMSBY man is due to go on trial later this month in relation to burglary and theft offences.
Brian Heasman, 35, of Weelsby Street, Grimsby, appeared before Grimsby Magistrates Court yesterday (Wednesday, July 8), where the case was committed to Grimsby Crown Court for trial.
Heasman is charged with burglary dwelling and theft with no violence; two counts of theft by finding and one count of failing to provide a sample for a class A drugs test.
The trial will be held on Friday, July 24, from 10am.
His arrest follows the launch of the Humberside Police Summer Burglary Campaign on Wednesday, July 1, which urges members of the public to ensure they do not provide tempting targets for thieves.
Residents are being asked to assist the force by keeping their properties secure, register property onto www.immobilise.com so it can be identified and returned if lost or stolen and by calling Humberside Police with information about criminality.
The public should call the police if they see people acting suspiciously in their community, if there is a burglary in progress or if they have details about those involved in criminality.
This can be done this using 999 in an emergency, 101 in a non-emergency or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
