It follows an attempted armed robbery at a financial provider on Bloxwich High Street just after 3.30pm yesterday (11 May) in which staff were threatened with a screwdriver. 

Around 4.10pm the same day a staff member was threatened with a screwdriver at a shop on Turnberry Road and cash boxes stolen.

Thankfully no-one was injured and the cash boxes were recovered. 

Aaron Pitt, of Leyland Croft, Pelsall, was charged with possessing an offensive weapon, attempted robbery, robbery and attempted theft of a motor vehicle.

He was remanded into custody and is due to appear at Wolverhampton Magistrates Court tomorrow morning (13 May).
