Suspect Charged with Burglaries and Theft of Vehicles and Perfume in Dartford and Sevenoaks

A man from Welling has been charged with multiple offences after allegedly stealing two cars, along with a large amount of perfume, from two locations in Dartford and Sevenoaks.

The suspect, identified as Gary Parks of Okehampton Crescent, was charged with burglary, car theft, theft of number plates, and dishonestly receiving a stolen Range Rover. The charges come after a string of thefts in April and June of this year.

The first incident was reported by a resident in Wilmington, who had his Audi and Mercedes stolen from his driveway on April 3. It was discovered that the keys had been taken from inside the house. A week later, staff at Boots the Chemist in Sevenoaks High Street reported that perfume worth £6,441 had been stolen from their store.

In June, another offence occurred at Savers in Dartford High Street, where a suspected stolen vehicle was used to break into the store and steal approximately £3,363 worth of perfume.

After conducting thorough investigations, the Kent Crime Squad executed a search warrant at an address in London on Friday, June 18. Parks, 34, was arrested and charged on the same day. He was remanded in custody and appeared before Medway Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, June 19.

Local residents are reminded to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the authorities. The swift action of the Kent Crime Squad has brought justice to the victims of these thefts and serves as a reminder that such criminal behavior will not be tolerated in our community.
