Officers attended and arrests were made a short time later. A 14-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy have now been charged with going equipped for theft.

The 14-year-old, from Felixstowe, has also been charged with stealing a sling shot from a VW Polo parked in Coronation Drive on the same evening, while the 15-year-old, from Lowestoft, has been charged with two separate counts of theft relating to computer games being stolen from individuals.
