Man charged with theft

Scunthorpe: Court appearance scheduled

17 Jul 2015

A Scunthorpe man has been charged with theft, driving without due care and attention and failing to stop following an incident in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Charles Chatterton, 50, of Southfield Road, Scunthorpe, will appear before North Lincolnshire Magistrates Court on Thursday, August 6.

The 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 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.
