Man in court to face charges of burgling Saffron Walden jewellery store and assaulting and obstructing a police officer

A man has appeared in court accused of burgling a Saffron Walden jewellery store last Thursday (March 7).

He is also charged with possessing a weapon for the discharge of a noxious substance, with assaulting a police officer by beating – both of which he denies – and with obstructing a police officer in the execution of their duty, to which he did not enter a plea.

Also, Happer, of Longcroft Rise, Loughton, admitted possession of cannabis.

He was remanded in custody until he appears at Chelmsford Crown Court on April 8.
