Two teenagers have been convicted for numerous offences across Welling, Sidcup, Bexleyheath, Thamesmead, and Plumstead.

Charlie Arbia, 18 of Hartley Road, Welling, and Connor Sabarudin, 18, of Sycamore Avenue, Sidcup both pleaded guilty to two residential burglaries, two attempted burglaries, two theft of motor vehicles, three thefts, and one attempted cash in transit robbery, when they appeared at Woowich Crown Court on June 9.

Sabarudin was also convicted of possession of cannabis.

Each teenager was sentenced to four years and eight months imprisonment for these offences, but additional offences heard in the same hearing mean that in total Arbia has been sentenced to six years and eight months, and Sabarudin to five years and four months in jail.

Pc Oakes from the Bexley Crime Squad, said: “These males gave no consideration to the effect that their crimes would have on their victims. I hope that the sentences handed down act as a message to others nivolved in serious criminality, that we will do all we can to get justice for victims of crime.”
