A 32-year-old man is to face Spalding magistrates later this month charged with possessing heroin and handling stolen goods.

Jevgenij Zejer of Chancery Court, Spalding, is due to appear at court on November 28 after he was arrested last Friday after being seen on a bicycle riding in breach of a one-way system in The Crescent.

Insp Jim Tyner, community policing inspector for Spalding, said: “While meeting with some members of the Crescent Traders Association on Friday, I stopped a man who was cycling contrary to the one-way system in The Crescent.

“After a brief conversation, the man was arrested on suspicion of theft of a pedal cycle and possession of a controlled drug.

“He was later also arrested on suspicion of being involved in a burglary in October and eventually charged with handling stolen goods and possession of heroin.

“The man was bailed to appear at court on November 28.”

Meanwhile, a 27-year-old man living in Spalding has been arrested on suspicion of affray after an incident outside a takeaway in the town on Saturday.

The man was taken to Boston Police Station for questioning in relation to the alleged affray on Winsover Road at about 9.15pm.

He was later bailed until December 23 and anyone with information about Saturday’s incident should call PC Craig Lockton on 101 or Crimestoppers, in confidence, on 0800 555 111.

Please state incident 401 of November 9.
