Man charged after stinger halts Walton getaway car

An 18-year-old man has been charged following a burglary in Surrey which led to a police stinger device being used to halt a car.

The car hit a lamppost in Hampton Court Road, Walton-on-Thames, after police pursued it following the burglary at a property in Sidney Road on 5 January.

A man has now been charged with burglary and aggravated vehicle-taking.

A second man has been questioned and bailed until next month in connection with the incident.

Stolen property, including jewellery and mobile phones, was later recovered in the Hampton Court area.
