A 28-year-old man from Dorchester is due to appear in court today charged with two burglaries in the Poundbury area.

Richard Mark Riley was arrested yesterday.

He's been charged with a burglary in Highdown Avenue and one in Aconbury Avenue which happened last month.

A 20 year old man from London was arrested and charged with a burglary in Woodlands Crescent in Poundbury in December.

PC Mike Brown of Dorchester South Safer Neighbourhood Team said, "We are committed to bringing offenders to justice. Those who are intent on breaking the law will be robustly targeted by the police. We continue to forge a very close working relationship with the residents association and the three home watch groups on Poundbury to work in partnership to reduce crime and keep our communities safe. This is a significant arrest in light of the recent burglaries and we will continue in our efforts to target further criminal activity both on Poundbury and all areas of the Dorchester section".
