At around a midday on Friday 8 March 2024, Kent Police was informed of an attempted burglary in Southfleet, Gravesend. Two suspects reportedly left the scene in a grey Peugeot.

Shortly after, numerous 999 calls reported a similarly-described vehicle for dangerous driving. A separate incident was linked to the same car shortly after, when a van was reported stolen from Sevenoaks. Proactive patrols spotted a vehicle matching the Peugeot’s description on the A25 Riverhead and brought it to a stop in Homedean Road. The driver and the passenger left the vehicle on foot, and allegedly fled into nearby fields.

A 17-year-old boy and a 28-year-old man from Orpington were later arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary, dangerous driving, failing to stop, driving without a licence or insurance, and theft of a motor vehicle. Both have since been bailed until Wednesday 5 June pending further enquiries.
