Three charged after police pursuit in North Yorkshire; they were spotted hiding in a tree near York
Three men have been charged with conspiracy to steal and aggravated vehicle taking after they were arrested after a police pursuit in North Yorkshire.
They allegedly attacked three ATMs, one in Doncaster on 4 March where large amounts of cash were stolen, one in Shepshed, Leicestershire, on 4 March and one in Starbeck, Harrogate, on 6 March.
The men were arrested following a police pursuit in York in the early hours of Tuesday morning. Officers deployed a stinger to try and bring it to a halt and the vehicle, a white Seat Leon, was later found abandoned in a hedge near the York Designer Outlet shopping centre.
The three suspects were located up a tree shortly afterwards when they were spotted by the NPAS police helicopter.
All three men have been charged with conspiracy to steal and aggravated vehicle taking. A 38 year-old and 23 year-old appeared at York Magistrates Court today and have been remanded in custody, next appearing in court on 14 April. A 16 year-old has been bailed with a curfew.
