One man has been charged with 46 offences after a spate of break-ins in one town in the space of just a few weeks.
At around 11pm on Saturday, March 12, police received several reports of a man seen burgling, or attempting to enter, properties in the Jellicoe Avenue and Whitehill Road area of Gravesend.
Craig Graham was detained on suspicion of the offences and taken into custody after a search of the area.
Following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, he was charged with six offences – the burglary of four homes, attempted burglary and vehicle interference.
Car keys were stolen from two different properties.
But then a further 41 charges were authorised for offences which took place between February 12 and March 1, with the bulk of them happening in the Riverview estate area.
The charges consist of four counts of burglary, 21 counts of attempted burglary, 14 counts of vehicle interference and two counts of theft from a motor vehicle.
Items stolen include a designer handbag, a luxury purse, sunglasses and cash.
The 35-year-old, of Poplar Avenue, Gravesend, was remanded in custody to attend Medway Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
At the hearing, he was remanded in custody to appear at Woolwich Crown Court on April 11.
