ONE of the men accused of stealing RAAF service medals and more than $40,000 worth of property from houses across Yamanto has been charged with five more burglaries in Churchill.

Jeremy Patrick De Bono, 20, and David Noel Currie, 27, have been accused of multiple stealing offences.

Appearing from Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre via video link, De Bono was charged with five additional break-ins in Churchill. He is facing accusations of breaking into five homes in the suburb where electronics, video game consoles, a guitar, a bed and jewellery were stolen.

De Bono didn't enter a plea to the 15 stealing charges he now faces. He has also been charged with breaching an intensive corrections order.

He was remanded in custody until September 10 when he is again set to appear by video.

Currie's case was also adjourned until the same day.

He has been charged with 13 burglaries, including a number where he is the co-accused with De Bono.

Defence lawyer Trevor Hoskin made no application for bail for either of the men.

The pair was arrested on August 1, after police performed a targeted operation in reaction to a string of burglaries at Yamanto, Flinders View and Churchill.

Among the nearly $40,000 worth of stolen property were the service medals and Order of Australia medal of retired serviceman David Cussons, which police found in the bottom of a wheelie bin.

Police will allege the pair was involved in all the burglaries after being found in possession of a huge number of stolen goods. Along with medals, police claim the two had jewellery, laptops, watches, cameras and video game consoles.
