COURT: Douglas Brown charged with 15 counts of fraud and burglary

Wednesday 28th April 2021

A MAN from Wateringbury has been charged with fifteen counts of fraud and burglary.

Douglas Brown, 54, of Bow Road, reportedly stole cash and bank cards from an address in the village multiple times between April 2 and April 16.

It is alleged that following two of the break-ins, bank cards were then used to make purchases for train and bus tickets, tobacco, alcohol and food items in Maidstone town centre.

Mr Brown was later charged with four burglaries and eleven frauds.

He appeared before Medway Magistrates’ Court the following day where he was remanded to a hearing at Maidstone Crown Court on May 21.
