Following an appeal on the BBC show Crimewatch, Paul Langford was charged with four burglary dwelling offences and seven fraud offences and appeared at Birmingham Magistrates Court on Saturday.
Langford, who is from Bilston, was arrested in Washwood Heath last Thursday.
The arrest comes after the 38-year-old featured in the current series of Crimewatch as part of its ‘Most Wanted’ gallery.
He has now been remanded in custody for a future court date.
A spokesperson for West Midlands Police said: "Burglary and fraud are taken very seriously and we urge anyone who has been a victim of this type of crime, or knows someone who does, to let us know.
