Suspected Melksham joyriders face court over car theft

Two suspected joyriders will face trial next week, after a car was taken from a Melksham driveway.

Oliver Howell-Higgins, 27 from Melksham, was charged with drink-driving, driving while disqualified, theft from a motor vehicle and taking a vehicle without consent, after he was arrested on December 28.

Twenty-four-year-old David Dunscombe, also from Melksham, has been charged with taking without consent and theft from a vehicle.

The pair are accused of stealing money, tools and a camera from a VW Passat left on Sweetbriar Road, Melksham, which was found the next morning on the same driveway with a wing mirror missing.

They will be tried at North West Wiltshire Magistrates Court in Chippenham on Thursday, January 16.
