A MAN has appeared at court accused of carrying out a string of burglaries in Darlington.

Ryan Michael Blareau appeared at Newton Aycliffe Magistrates’ Court yesterday where he faced three counts of dwelling burglary, two of fraud by false representation and one of non-dwelling burglary.

It is alleged that Blareau stole a door key, a bank card and a North Face jacket from a property in Willow Road and a bank card, a Playstation 4 controller and a Nokia mobile phone from an address in Craig Street.

He is also accused of taking a 52” Samsung TV, a fake Rolex watch, a laptop and clothing valued at £2,235 from a home in Witton Crescent and a mountain bike valued at £239 from a shed in Auckland Avenue.

The offences took place between January 3 and February 2.

Blareau, of no fixed address, will appear at Teesside Crown Court on March 20.
