POLICE have charged a man with a string of burglaries at business premises.

Paul Stone is accused of breaking into AJS Catering in Kingston Road, Buckland, Portsmouth and stealing £62 between June 30 and July 3.

He is also charged with breaking into nearby Fatima’s Hairdressers, also in Kingston Road, over the same period.

Police say the 35-year-old broke into Lalys Pharmacy, in the same road, on July 4.

And he is accused of burgling the Albert Road Food Store, in Albert Road, Southsea, between July 12 and July 18.

It is alleged he stole a Tom Tom sat nav, a laptop computer, £200 and boxes of cigarettes.

Stone, of Stirling Street, Buckland, did not enter any pleas to four charges of burglary when he appeared at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court.

The magistrates ruled the charges were so serious they should be heard at the crown court.

Stone was remanded in custody until October when the case will be sent to Portsmouth Crown Court.
