(CNS): Police said this morning that a 29-year-old man has been charged with burglary following two East End break-ins which happened in December. James Romano Whittaker will appear in court this morning (Tuesday, 20 January) accused of two counts of burglary. Whittaker was arrested by Bodden Town Detectives who were investigating two break-ins which occurred in the district on 26 and 31 December, said police.
