Two teenage boys are due to appear at Ipswich Youth Court tomorrow morning charged with going equipped for theft following an incident in Felixstowe on the evening of Sunday, January 5.

Officers attended and arrests were made a short time later.

A 14-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy have now been charged with going equipped for theft.
