Two suspected burglars have been charged following a report of a break-in at Detling Aerodrome industrial estate.
At around 12.55pm on Monday, two men were seen acting suspiciously in a private yard at the site.
Reports say they left the area in a Ford Transit van that was later stopped by a police patrol on Medway City Estate in Rochester.
The driver and a passenger were arrested and officers seized a quantity of suspected stolen car parts and three sets of number plates.
Tom Buckley, of St Clair Close, Oxted, Surrey and Abraham Hilden, of Scallows Lane, Romsey, Hampshire were later charged with burglary and possession of articles for use in the course of theft, namely cloned vehicle registration plates.
Mr Buckley was also charged with driving while disqualified and having no insurance.
Mr Buckley, 31, appeared before Medway Magistrates’ Court yesterday where he was conditionally bailed to a hearing at Maidstone Crown Court on August 19.
Mr Hilden, 20, was bailed by Kent Police to the same hearing.
