John Folley, 32, was arrested in March this year and charged with robbery and possessing a bladed instrument. It followed an alleged raid at The Harvester restaurant at the Five Bells roundabout on London Road, Vange. Folley breached the conditions of his bail and is wanted by police. - Full story and pictures can be found in Today's Echo
