Armed robbers charged following Knutsford raid
Following a string of robberies, Michael Thorpe, 39 and Rochelle Holman, 31, have been charged with conspiracy to commit robbery.
The pair carried out three separate robberies, and attempted two others, earlier this year by approaching staff and passing across threatening notes. This included an armed robbery with a gun at a travel agent in Knutsford and another robbery where they claimed to have a bomb.
Their arrests were part of GMP’s Serious Organised Crime Group.
