Police officers who were alerted to a suspicious vehicle have charged a 14-year-old boy with driving offences.


The teenager from Gillingham, who has not been named as he is under 18, was charged on Friday 17 February 2017 with aggravated vehicle taking and damage of a motor vehicle, failing to stop for police, careless driving, and driving without insurance or a licence.

The charge follows an incident on Thursday 16 February 2017 where officers saw a large group of teenagers near a white transit van in Trafalgar Street, Gillingham at around 3.30am.

As police got closer to the vehicle the group dispersed and the vehicle drove off. Police pursued the van which then came to a stop in Windmill Road, Gillingham. Damage to a fence was also reported and two teenagers were arrested at the scene.

A 16-year-old boy who was arrested on suspicion of aggravated vehicle taking and possession of Class B drugs has been bailed pending further enquiries until Tuesday 18 April 2017.

The 14-year-old will appear before Medway Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 14 March 2017.
