Two teenagers have been charged by police investigating a series of burglaries in which vehicles were stolen from rural driveways.

  • In the early hours of Wednesday 10 April 2024, a house near Tenterden was broken into and a campervan stolen from outside.
  • The following day, a Volkswagen was stolen from the driveway of a property in the village of Throwley, near Faversham.
  • A third incident then occurred on the afternoon of Monday 15 April, when a house in Langton Green, near Tunbridge Wells, was broken into and another Volkswagen was stolen.

An investigation by Kent Police’s Crime Squad has since been ongoing, resulting in the arrest of three teenagers on Tuesday 16 April.

A man aged 18, of Kettering, Northamptonshire, and a 16-year-old boy who cannot be named because of his age, have since been charged with conspiracy to burgle. Both suspects are due to appear before Folkestone Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 18 April.

A 14-year-old boy has been bailed pending further enquiries.
