A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a man accused of stealing the sound system from a church in Erith.

Barry Kenny, 40, of no fixed address, was due to appear at Bromley Magistrates' Court today (August 9).

He is charged with entering Christ Church Erith on March 10 last year and stealing an amplifier and mixing desk to the value of £450.

Kenny did not appear in court so magistrates issued a warrant for his arrest.

He had also been due to appear in court to face a previous charge of failing to appear at Bromley Magistrates’ Court, this time on June 22.
