Lutterworth man charged with robbery and criminal damage

Rugby Editorial 31st Jan, 2019   0

A LUTTERWORTH man has been arrested and charged in a crackdown on wanted people who are evading police.

Ashley Challis, 29, of Leicester Road, Lutterworth, has been charged with robbery and criminal damage in relation to an incident in Lutterworth on December 24 last year.

He will appear at Leicester Magistrates’ Court on March 21.

He was among six people arrested in the latest phase of Operation Cabriolet, which has so far seen almost 100 arrests.

Police raided homes across Leicestershire to target people who were suspected of being involved in crime, wanted on warrant or needed to be recalled to prison after breaching the terms of their license.

Detective Chief Inspector Shaun Orton, who was in charge of the enforcement operation, said: “This latest phase of Operation Cabriolet has been a success with officers making six arrests.

“The offences they were arrested for may not be classed as the most serious but we know that low-level crime is just as concerning for our local communities.

“The force will continue to do all it can to bring those who commit offences in the community to justice and we will continue to carry such operations in the future across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

“If anyone has information about crime in their area they are encouraged to contact 101.”
