A man has been charged following a reported burglary in Broadstairs.

During the early hours of Wednesday 17 January, a property on The Broadway was broken into and items were disturbed.

An attempted burglary was also reported in West Dumpton Lane at around 2.30am on the same date.

Officers had also received reports of a person entering an address in Ramsgate Road, between 7.15pm on Tuesday 16 January and 8am on Wednesday 17 January, during which a man reportedly made an inappropriate comment to an occupant.

On 23rd February, officers arrested Jehovany Palata, 28, who was later charged with two counts of theft, attempted burglary and trespassing with intent to commit a sexual offence.

Mr Palata, of Shroton Street, west London, appeared before Folkestone Magistrates’ Court today (February 26) and was remanded in custody to appear before Canterbury Crown Court on a date to be arranged.


  1. Probably not the same person with the same name and age who got banged up for almost stabbing someone to death in Norfolk 10 years ago ?

    I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.

  2. Over privileged people who can afford to live in central London, coming to Thanet to steal from decent working class folk. What an utter disgrace! Morally equates to racism.

  3. This guy seems dangerous even from the age of 20
