A BISHOP’S Waltham man has been charged and was due to appear in court today (Monday) after two homes in Fareham were burgled.

The burglaries happened in East Hill Close on September 28 and Spurlings Road on October 5.

In the first incident, entry was allegedly forced to the house sometime between 11.30am and 7pm, with nothing appearing to have been stolen, while the second occurred at around 6pm, where it is alleged a man forced entry but then left again when he saw that someone was home.

Larky Hughes, 19, of Hoe Road, Bishop's Waltham, has now been charged with two counts of burglary. He was remanded in custody and was due to appear before Portsmouth Magistrates' Court this morning.
