Two women in custody for an alleged burglary of a Sumner home booked on an accommodation website have had five new burglary charges laid in the Christchurch District Court.

Judge Tony Couch remanded Terangimarie O-Te-Arohunui Jury, 35, of Burnside, in custody until for a bail application, and Samadhi Kalita Lucas, 30, of Woolston, was remanded in custody for an electronically monitored bail application on July 16.
