The find came after investigations into the recent spate of thefts from allotments in Bridlington, Pocklington, Goole and Hedon.
Officers from Humberside Police have charged a 48-year-old man who will be appearing at Bridlington Magistrates’ Court in early December to face more than 20 burglary and theft charges.
Detective Constable Jeff Hall, from Goole CID, said: “It is a really nice feeling when we can reunite property with its rightful owners and especially when we have charged a man to court.”
