Pair charged over series of shop burglaries

TWO men have been charged and remanded in custody in relation to a series of burglaries.

Thomas Birbeck (33), of Oldcotes Close, Dinnington, was charged with two counts of burglary.

The charges relate to incidents in June and July of this year where the Tesco store on Undergate Road in Dinnington and the Co-op on Woodhouse Green, Thurcroft, were broken into.

Cigarettes, phones and games were taken from Tesco and cigarettes stolen from the Co-op.

John Williams (26), of no fixed address, has been charged with one count of burglary in relation to an offence in June, when the Co-op at Swallownest was broken into and a large amount of cigarettes were taken.

A police spokesman said: “Both Williams and Birbeck have been remanded in to custody to appear before Sheffield Crown Court at a later date.”
