A man wanted in connection with an aggravated burglary in which another intruder died has been arrested by police.

Billy Jeeves, 28, was wanted by officers investigating the failed robbery at a home in Hither Green, south east London.

He was located and detained in north Kent on Friday evening by the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command.

Jeeves was arrested on suspicion of two counts of burglary, theft and possession of a controlled substance, the force said.

Scotland Yard confirmed Jeeves was taken into custody at a Kent police station.

The Met said in a statement: “No other persons are being sought in connection with this investigation.

“Enquiries continue.”

Detectives had appealed for information regarding Jeeves after the botched robbery of the home of pensioner Richard Osborn-Brooks.

Henry Vincent, 37, was fatally stabbed during the incident on 4 April.
