Man faces fraud charge

A FORMER March man is due to appear in court on Monday March 28 in connection with the alleged theft of more than £16,000 of sports and music memorabilia for a charity auction.

Tom Smith (23), of South Side, Wimbotsham near King’s Lynn, has been charged with fraud by false representation and is due before magistrates at Huntingdon.

The property, stolen last year from a hotel in Huntington, includes: a signed Ricky Hatton boxing glove, an England football shirt from 1966 signed by nine of the players, an original and signed copy of Michael Jackson’s Thriller vinyl LP, a Lewis Hamilton official glove, and LPs by the Rat Pack, Elvis Presley, the Beatles, David Bowie, the Rolling Stones and The Who.
