Teenager charged after mobile phone shop robbery

A teenager has appeared in court charged in connection with a mobile phone robbery.

It comes after police recovered thousands of pounds worth of stolen mobile phones and arrested two suspects within minutes of a reported robbery at the Three store in Stodman Street, Newark. 

It’s alleged two offenders wearing face coverings entered the shop and threatened a member of staff before loading up boxes with a large number of phones, tablets, and earphones.

They ran off with the boxes following the robbery which happened around 2.45pm on Wednesday 3 January 2024.

Officers were quickly on scene, searched the area, and arrested two suspects a short time later after a foot chase.
