Man charged with Sittingbourne burglary

Officers investigating a burglary at a house have charged a man.
 
Evaldas Kajokas, 24, of Galway Road, Sheerness, has been charged with one count of burglary and one count of driving without a licence and one count of driving without insurance.
 
He was charged with burglary after a house was reported to have been broken into at around 5am on 14 October 2018 in Harold Road, Sittingbourne.
 
He was arrested and charged on 3 November 2018 and was subsequently also charged with the driving offences.  
 
Mr Kajokas appeared before Medway Magistrates’ Court on 5 November 2018 where he was remanded in custody and will appear before the same court on a future date yet to be determined.
 

Securing property during winter months

The burglary charge comes just days after Kent Police launched its annual campaign to help prevent and detect burglaries during the winter months.
 
With residents leaving their homes throughout the winter months to attend festive events, there is typically a spike in burglary reports across the county. 

Officers will be taking a proactive approach throughout the course of the campaign and will continue to advise home owners of the simple steps they can take to protect their properties.

How to protect your home:

  • Ensure doors and windows are secure before leaving your property
  • Keep keys, cash and expensive items out of view
  • Use timer switches on lights and radios to make your home look occupied
  • Keep gates locked and boundaries secure
  • Lock away bikes, tools and garden items that could be stolen or used to break into your home
 You can also:
  • Security-mark items including bicycles, smartphones and laptops
  • Keep receipts and serial numbers safe
  • Photograph and insure expensive or unique items
  • Register important items for free at www.immobolise.com. This can help us return them to you if they are stolen and then recovered.
