Following his arrest, during which he was found to be in possession of a pair of kitchen scissors, Crozier was charged with three counts of burglary, possession of a bladed article in a public place, aggravated vehicle taking, driving without insurance, driving while disqualified and two counts of assaulting an emergency worker.

He has been remanded in custody to appear at Brighton Magistrates’ Court on Monday, February 21st.

“As an individual well known to police, we are pleased to have been able to bring charges in relation to a number of offences.

“I would like to personally thank the public, victims and business community for their support in this investigation, which should send a strong message that we take all reports of burglary seriously and will do everything we can to catch those responsible.”
