Two men have been charged with a raid at a Hampshire home during which burglars drove off in brand new £48,000 Audi A5 coupe after loading it with jewellery and other valuables.
Dean Lee, 22, of Romsey Road in Winchester, and 31-year-old Kevin Lucas of Hollybrook Road, Southampton, are alleged to have broken into the property at the Straight Mile in Ampfield near Romsey on September 7.
It is said they stole property including several thousand pounds worth of jewels, a safe, a camera and a laptop before driving off in the 2013 black Audi.
Both have been charged with a spate of burglaries, attempted break-ins and theft of motor vehicles in Hampshire and West Sussex.
They are due to appear at Southampton Crown Court on October 15. Police say that Lee has also been charged with being in possession of cannabis.
Eleven charges have been brought against Lee and Lucas. These include an attempted burglary at Jermyns Lane at Ampfield and attempted burglaries at Houghton and Braishfield.
Two further charges of theft of a motor vehicle relate to incidents at Chandler’s Ford and Totton.
All the incidents happened between August 7 and September 8.
