A MAN has been charged with attempted theft from a motor vehicle.

Michael Brookes, 29, of St Vincent Road, Gosport, was charged with the offence 
and with going equipped for theft – not from a motor vehicle.

It comes after police were called to Windsor Road, Gosport, to a report of someone trying car door handles on Saturday just after 12.45am on Saturday.

Brookes was bailed and is due in court on October 1.
