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.
