A teenager is to appear in court next week charged with a series of burglaries in Martham.

The 17-year-old, who can’t be named for legal reasons, was arrested on Tuesday, January 23, in connection with three burglaries in the village and one count of criminal damage.

The incidents happened in the early hours of the morning in three separate homes - one in Jubilee Walk, one in Bradfield Drive and one in The Green.

The teenager was additionally charged with three other burglaries, including one in Martham Sports and Social Club, all of which happened in 2017.

He is scheduled to appear at Great Yarmouth Youth Court on Thursday, February 1, having made a preliminary appearance at Norwich Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
