TWO men accused of being part of a car theft ring have been remanded in custody.

Perry Brown, 22, of Constable Mews, Bromley, is charged with conspiracy to burgle and Jamie Webb, 26, of Hurst Road, Sidcup, with conspiracy to burgle and conspiracy to handle stolen goods. Both men were remanded at Bromley Magistrates' Court last Wednesday pending a hearing on September 21.

A 'ringing' network is thought to be behind burglaries in Bromley where car keys are taken and the car stolen from the front drive.

Some 50 stolen cars, including Aston Martins and Mercedes, were recovered in the lead-up to the operation. The majority were no more than a year old and were taken in break-ins that occurred overnight while the owners were asleep upstairs.

It is believed the cars stolen were later cloned and sold on for less than the market price to innocent buyers.

Officers arrested 13 people during raids last Tuesday. Two other accused, Freddie Webb, 24, of Swanley Lane, Swanley, and Jason Webb, 22 of Milborough Crescent, Hither Green, were remanded in custody charged with conspiracy to burgle. Four more men and four women arrested during the raids have been bailed.
