A MAN and a teenage girl have been arrested on suspicion of theft after trouble flared at a cashpoint in Lowestoft.

Police are seeking witnesses after an incident close to the cashpoint machines at the Asda store at Horn Hill about 7.40pm on Saturday (February 19).

“There was a dispute over cash that had been taken from one of the machines,” a police spokesman said. Officers subsequently arrested two people – a 24-year-old man and a 17-year-old girl - in connection with the incident.

Both have now been bailed to return to Lowestoft police station on March 19 as police investigate the theft allegation.
