A man has been charged over an alleged attempted theft of a Royal British Legion charity tin in Rugby.

Police originally appealed for witnesses and information last week, when the alleged incident occurred on Tuesday November 4 at the Asda store in Rugby.

A man is alleged to have entered the store, while it was open to the public, and removed the Poppy Appeal tin from a cigarette kiosk, before the tin was recovered when he was challenged by a member of staff.

Carl Adams, 31, of Bond Street in Rugby, was charged on suspicion of theft from a shop. He has been bailed to appear at court on Tuesday November 25.

PC James Graham, the investigating officer, said: “Thank you for all the information received by the public that led to the arrest of the person believed to be responsible.”

Warwickshire Police would like to thank all of those who helped share the appeal.
