A MAN has been charged in connection with five burglaries across the county, including one in Charlton.

Aaron Morgan, of Sydney Avenue, in Hamble-Le-Rice, was today charged with conspiracy to commit burglary after a string of incidents across Hampshire.

On each occasion, cash boxes within the stores were taken.

The first of the five break-ins took place on August 17, last year, when the Tesco Express store in Charlton was targeted.

Between then and October 4, four more stores were targeted in Lymington, Cosham, Brockenhurst and Eastleigh.

Today, Morgan was charged conspiracy to burgle and was remanded into custody after being charged over the incidents.

He is due to appear at Southampton Crown Court on June 15.
