Louis Johnson, of Marley Crescent, and Michael Pemberton, of Edward Burdis Street, will both appear at South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court this morning (March 11) charged with conspiracy to commit theft.
It follows two incidents in the city in the early hours of Tuesday morning (March 9) where officers were called to a break-in at the Harbour View service station on Dame Dorothy Street, in Roker, where a car had been driven into the shutters in an attempt to gain entry.
