A Lowestoft man and two teenagers have been charged with burglary after a hammer was used to break into an O2 phone store in Bury St Edmunds.
Suffolk police were called at 2.15am on Thursday, April 29 following reports of a burglary in Buttermarket, Bury St Edmunds.
With three men seen in possession of a hammer breaking into the store, officers attended and the suspects escaped.
Two were arrested by police shortly afterwards - Eremia Mirea, 18, of no fixed abode and a 14-year-old boy from Leeds were arrested on suspicion of burglary.
They were subsequently charged, with a third suspect - 20-year-old Florin Craciun, of Queens Road in Lowestoft - arrested at 8.10pm last night.
He was later charged and all three are due to appear at South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court, in Ipswich, on Friday, April 30.
