A BOY from Faversham was one of four teenagers arrested as part of a crackdown on burglary last week.

Police swooped on suspected criminals in Swale as part of Operation Castle, a major three-month-long sting aimed at cutting the number of household burglaries and vehicle theft across Kent.

A 13-year-old boy from Faversham was arrested on Wednesday, February 6 in connection with a burglary in St Nicholas Road which happened on Friday, January 4.

He was charged and will appear in court on Monday, March 4.

Meanwhile, two teenagers from Sittingbourne, aged 14 and 17, were arrested in connection with a burglary committed in Park Road, Sittingbourne, and bailed pending further enquiries.

A 19-year-old Sittingbourne man remains in police custody on suspicion of burglary, after a search warrant was executed in Pembury Court.
