Vending cash theft charges

THREE men have been charged in relation to the theft of cash from 18 vending machines across Derbyshire — including ones in Belper.

The trio, aged between 38 and 47 and from the south coast, have been charged with conspiracy to steal between January 1 and January 11. They will appear before magistrates in Derby on January 28.

Cash was taken from vending machines at pubs and supermarkets.
