Three teenagers arrested in connection with a series of bike thefts have been charged. 

It comes after police searched a house in Thetford last month, when they recovered four stolen bikes. 

A teenage boy was arrested at the time and subsequently released on bail while further enquiries were made.

Two further arrests were made as the investigation continued and three teenagers, aged 14, 15 and 16, have now been charged with theft offences. 

The 14-year-old boy is accused on four counts of theft between September 17 and October 6, all of which relate to incidents in Thetford.

The 15-year-old is accused of stealing bikes in Thetford and Attleborough, on September 17 and 22 respectively. 

And the oldest boy is accused of three counts of theft in Thetford on October 6.
