THREE men have appeared in court charged with two Worcestershire burglaries.

Daniel Thomas, 24, Ian Finnegan, 34, and Jamie Williams, 24, all from Birmingham, were arrested on Wednesday after burglaries in Worcester, and Drakes Broughton, near Pershore, on Tuesday.

Detective Sergeant Dave Knight said the three men were arrested within hours of the burglaries taking place at addresses in Ombersley Road, Claines, and Walcott Lane, Drakes Broughton.

He said: "All three men have bee charged with the burglaries at the homes and one non-burglary intruding on a garage in Walcott Lane."

Finnegan has also been charged with a burglary in Hathaway Green Lane, in Stratford-upon-Avon, last year.

The three men appeared at Kidderminster Magistrates Court this morning (Thursday). None of the defendants entered a plea and two were remanded while Williams was granted bail.

They will next appear at Worcester Crown Court on December 1.
