The pair stand accused of conspiring to rob the Co-op stores in Brigstock, Broughton and Desborough and the Spar store in Coventry Road, Market Harborough between January 8 and January 17, 2018.

District Judge Tim Daber told the pair that the offences were too serious to be heard at the magistrates' court so their case would be heard by Northampton Crown Court. Their next hearing will take place in December.
