Sullivan Lee, 22, of Leicester Road, Market Harborough, is charged with two counts of burglary and theft of a motor vehicle.
Both men are due to appear in court today, Friday 3 November.
The pair were arrested after officers executed warrants in the Berecroft, Rundells and Fern Hill areas of the town on Wednesday 1 November.
Five men and a woman who were also arrested as part of the operation have been released on bail.
Chief Inspector Paul Austin, Harlow’s District Commander, said:
“We’ve been investigating individuals we believe are involved in multiple burglaries and vehicle thefts across Harlow in the last three months.
“There has been concern locally about car crime and burglary, particularly in the Latton Bush area, so hopefully our work will reassure the public that we don’t just investigate these crimes, we’re dedicated to tackling those responsible and bringing them to justice.”
