Two boys, aged 12 and 14, were arrested after alcohol and lighters were stolen in a 3am burglary at a Fenland service station.  

Police were called just after 3am on Sunday, May 9 after two people entered Robinhood Service Station in March and carried out the burglary.  

This isn’t the first time the Wimblington Road fuel station has been hit by crime; in January 2019 two armed thugs also robbed the convenience store.  

The balaclava-wearing thugs attempted to steal from two stores in March and one in Chatteris in a night of crime on January 25 2019.  

Speaking of the latest incident, a police spokesperson said: “We were called at 3.15am on May 9 to reports of a burglary at a service station in March. 

“Two people entered the store and stole alcohol and lighters.
