Detectives have charged a man and woman in connection with a burglary and robbery which happened in Fritton on New Year’s Eve.

Jamie Lee Bowron Gill, aged 24 and Dana Cox, aged 21, were both arrested in Humberside on Monday January 22 and subsequently charged with the offences.

The crimes relate to an incident which happened between 7pm and 7.30pm on Sunday December 31 2017 when electrical items were stolen from a property in New Road.

The suspects then approached a couple on the same street and allegedly threatened them with a knife before stealing their vehicle.

The incident happened close to Waveney Forest, a woodland beauty spot popular with dog walkers and nature lovers.

The two were charged to appear at Norwich Magistrates Court today, Wednesday.
