An 18-year-old man is due to appear before magistrates charged with theft after police swooped on an address in Huntingdon on Thursday.

The man was arrested after officers raided a house in Byron Close at about 1pm in connection with a robbery which had taken place in the Oxmoor area on August 11.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire police said: “An 18-year-old man from Huntingdon was arrested on suspicion of robbery and theft and taken to Thorpe Wood Police Station, in Peterborough.

“He was later charged with theft and released on bail to return to Cambridge Magistrates' Court on September 9.”
