Two men have admitted and two have denied being involved in a raid on Francis Wain jewellers in King’s Lynn after appearing at Norwich Crown Court.
Ossama Hamed, 18, of Gresswell Street, London, and Ahmed Ahmed, 19, of Nags Head Road, Enfield, Middlesex, pleaded guilty to both counts on the indictment - the offences of robbery and possession of a firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence.
However, Imran Mostafa, 20, from Peverills Way, London, and a 16 year-old who cannot be named for legal reasons, have already pleaded not guilty to being involved in the robbery which took place at the jeweller’s shop, on Norfolk Street, on January 31 and also not guilty to possession of a firearm with intent to commit a robbery.
The trial for those two will be on August 13.
The four defendants were all remanded in custody.
The case of the other two has been adjourned for sentencing.
