The 19-year-old is charged with four attempted burglaries, three burglaries and two car thefts.

The 17-year-old boy has been charged with the same offences, plus one count of handling stolen goods.

They appeared at court last Friday, with the older suspect remanded in custody pending trial.

The 17-year-old admitted all the charges against him and was bailed ahead of sentencing.

The 38-year-old man, who was arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods, was released under investigation.

Anyone with information about those involved in burglaries or handling stolen goods should call South Yorkshire Police on 101.
