Detectives investigating two burglaries on the same Gravesend road have charged a teenager with both offences.

The burglaries were committed in Meadow Road on August 8 and on both occasions the offender was interrupted by the victims and left empty handed.

Following enquires, officers identified Andon-Lei Covey as a suspect and he was arrested on Wednesday 3 October.

The 18-year-old, of Lynsted Close in Ashford, was later charged with two counts of burglary and was remanded in custody to appear at Medway Magistrates’ Court on 4 October.

At this hearing he was remanded in custody and will next appear at Canterbury Crown Court on Thursday 1 November.
