A 23-year-old man has been charged on suspicion of breaking into two Ipswich homes and stealing a car.
Thomas Lee, of no fixed address, is being held in custody ahead of a hearing at Ipswich Crown Court.
It comes after a window was forced open to gain entry into a home in All Saints Road overnight between July 13-14.
A set of keys were taken from inside and then used to steal a vehicle parked on the street nearby.
Then around midnight on July 14, an insecure front door was used to break in to a property in Kensington Road and a set of keys were again stolen from inside.
An attempt was made to start a vehicle parked nearby but the victim disturbed the crime.
Lee was arrested on July 15 and taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.
