A man has been charged following an armed robbery at a Tesco store in Bury St Edmunds.
Two men entered the Tesco Express on the Moreton Hall estate in Lawson Place around 5.30am on Monday, March 23, armed with knives and threatened members of staff.
The men stole cash, two mobile phones and the keys to a white Suzuki Alto, which was then taken from outside the shop. The car was found later that morning in Ashwell Road, Bury.
Jordan Carr, 30, of no fixed address, has been charged with robbery, possession of a knife in a public place, and taking a vehicle without consent in relation to the Tesco incident.
He has also been charged with attempted theft from a shop – in connection with the attempted theft of perfume from Debenhams in Charter Square, Bury St Edmunds, on March 2.
