Suspect Detained After Attempted Pharmacy Burglary

A suspected burglar has appeared at court following an attempted break-in at a pharmacy in Milton Regis.

At around 10.15pm on Monday (7th March), Kent Police received a report that a window had been damaged at the business on Milton Regis High Street. Officers went to the scene and then started a search of the area. At around 11.35pm, a patrol saw a suspicious vehicle and requested the driver to stop.

It is alleged the car did not stop and, following a pursuit, it came to a halt in Basser Hill, Lower Halstow, where the driver was arrested.

George Bignall, aged 42 and of Middletune Avenue, was later charged with attempted burglary, dangerous driving, failing to stop when required by a police officer, driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence, driving without insurance and failing to provide a specimen of blood for a test.

Mr Bignall appeared before Medway Magistrates’ Court yesterday (Wednesday 9th March) where he was remanded to a hearing at Maidstone Crown Court on Thursday 7th April.
