Progress Made in Arrests of Suspects in Attempted Burglary Case in Southfleet

Local authorities have made progress in a recent case involving an attempted burglary in New Barn Road, Southfleet. According to reports, a man and a teenager were arrested after they evaded police following the incident.

The incident occurred around noon last Friday, when officers were alerted to the attempted burglary. The suspects, believed to be the driver and passenger, fled the scene on foot and were later spotted in a nearby field on Homedean Road. The suspects were seen leaving the scene in a grey Peugeot.

Shortly after, several emergency calls were made reporting a similar vehicle driving recklessly. Police patrols were able to locate the vehicle, matching the description of the Peugeot, on the A25 near Riverhead. The car was brought to a halt on Homedean Road, where the driver and passenger once again fled on foot into nearby fields.

In a separate incident, a van was reported stolen from Sevenoaks and was later linked to the same car. Fortunately, local authorities were able to make progress in the case and have arrested a 17-year-old boy and a 28-year-old man from Orpington on suspicion of attempted burglary, dangerous driving, failing to stop, driving without a licence or insurance, and theft of a motor vehicle.

Both suspects have been released on bail until June 5 pending further inquiries. The local community is relieved to hear that the authorities are taking swift action in solving this case and ensuring the safety of residents.
