A MAN has been charged with 21 burglaries from homes in Southampton.

Jason Geddes is the third person arrested by police investigating a string of break-ins in the Polygon area, mainly targeting student homes.

The 35-year-old, of Steep Close, Southampton, is also facing a charge of handling stolen goods and is due to appear before the city crown court on December 10, having appeared before magistrates earlier this week.

He is the second man charged by detectives working with the Operation Saxon team, which has also found links to other burglaries in Bitterne and Portswood.

Andrew Stone, 46, of Adelaide Road, St Denys, has been charged with two counts of handling stolen goods and will appear before Southampton Magistrates on December 7.
