A man has been charged after a ram-raid at a petrol station in Framlingham.

Police were called just before 12.30am on Friday to reports of an alarm sounding at a petrol station in Station Road and a car driving off at high speed.

When they arrived they found a black Mercedes had been reversed into a side wall of the station shop, causing a large hole. Cigarettes and tobacco had been stolen from the shop.

The 29-year-old man, Levi Hilden from Severn Road, Ipswich was arrested and last night charged with three counts of burglary, theft of a car, handling stolen goods, driving without a licence and possession of a Class B drug.

Hilden will appear at Ipswich Magistrates’ Court on Saturday 12 October.
