Man charged in connection with burglaries of two homes in Sudbury
A 43-year-old man has been charged, following two house burglaries that occurred in Sudbury within three days of each other.
Ali El Fellahi, who is of no fixed abode, appeared via video link at Ipswich Magistrates Court on Wednesday, where he faced charges on two counts of burglary, and a separate charge of possession of a Class A drug.
The charges were in relation to a pair of incidents that occurred at two different households between Friday, October 12 and Sunday, October 14.
The first burglary took place on the Friday between 1am and 7am, where wallets, watches and a satchel containing a HP laptop were stolen from a property in Friars Street, after entry had been gained through an insecure window.
The second crime occurred on the Sunday just before midnight in Melford Road.
In this instance, the offender gained entry to a property via a window and stole various items, including laptops and jewellery, before fleeing the home when they were disturbed by the occupants.
Suffolk Constabulary then began an investigation into the two offences and launched a public appeal for witnesses.
As a result of their enquiries, police officers subsequently arrested El Fellahi on Monday and took him in for questioning, before charging him with the crimes.
Following his preliminary court appearance this week, he was remanded into custody.
El Fellahi has been scheduled to make his next court appearance at Ipswich Crown Court on Wednesday, November 21.
