A report came in of a robbery in the town centre, and when officers arrived at the scene they discovered that forced entry had been made into a shop and noticed that a suspicious-looking woman ran into another shop, where her partner in crime was when she spotted the officers.
Upon checking their records the police discovered the couple had previously been arrested for the same crimes.
Each of the alleged criminals had a specific role to play. While the woman carried out the surveillance, the male forced access to the establishment to carry out the robbery. Officers also found tools they used to break in which included, pliers, screwdrivers and a knife.
