    A man has been charged with armed robbery of a convenience store in Plymouth.

    According to local reports, police were called to the Premier Store on Regent Street, Greenbank following an incident at around 3.45pm on Friday (5) after a man entered the store brandishing a large kitchen knife.

    The man attempted to open the cash register. Failing to achieve this he is said to have then grabbed a lone shop employee before fleeing the scene with what police described as a “substantial amount of cash”.

    Searches of the area were carried out by officers, including back lanes and bins, as well as the search of a property in the area of Greenbank Road by specialist search teams. As a result, a number of items were later recovered, including clothing linked to the alleged robbery.

    Later, on the morning of Sunday (7), the man was arrested by police and taken to Charles Cross police station custody suite where he was interviewed. He was identified as Christopher Tannou, aged 30, from Plymouth.

    He was later charged with robbery and possession of a bladed article in a public place. Tannou was remanded into custody and scheduled to appear at Plymouth Magistrates’ Court this week.
