Three Charged After Armed Robbery

Three men are due before magistrates this morning charged in connection with an armed robbery.

It happened at the Rock Estate Post Office and Convenience Store in Hall Road in Oulton Broad in Lowestoft in January 2010 when knives were used to threaten staff before thousands of pounds worth of cash was stolen.

Two have been directly charged and the third is being summonsed to court following the incident that happened just after 9am on Saturday 9th of January last year.

27-year-old Alan Jacobs from Spire Court in Plymouth, 34-year-old Wayne Jacobs from Princess Drive in Liverpool and a 28-year-old man from Plymouth will each face a charge of conspiracy to rob.
