A 35 year old man from Denton has been charged with a string of robberies – including two terrifying armed raids on Saddleworth sub post offices.
He is accused of two robberies, attempted robbery and possessing an offensive weapon in a public place. In the first raid last November sub-postmistress Mandy Gorey faced two armed robbers, one holding a hand gun, the other an axe, at Greenfield Post Office in Chew Valley Road. The men sped off on a motorbike.
In March, police launched a massive manhunt after two raiders held sub-postmaster Paul Borg at gunpoint in Diggle post office. They threatened him with a hand gun, stole cash and again left on a motorcycle, later found abandoned.
He is scheduled to appear at Manchester Crown Court on June 10.
