Although these charges are a major step forward, we are still appealing to anyone with any information relating to the other burglaries across the Black Country to speak to us.

“We don’t underestimate the impact such crimes have on our communities and the widespread anxiety and distress they cause.

"We would continue to ask the public to remain vigilant and not to open their doors if they are unsure who is visiting.

"We ask that communities to look out for any people or vehicles acting suspiciously in their neighbourhoods and report them to us."
