Man accused of Lincoln post office robbery to face retrial

A man accused of staging an armed robbery at a Lincolnshire village post office is to face a retrial after the jury at Lincoln Crown Court was discharged.

Anton Stepniewski, 26, of Sturgate, near Gainsborough, is accused of carrying out a raid at the post office in Fiskerton near Lincoln.

He has denied charges of robbery and possession of an imitation firearm with intent to commit robbery on 10 February this year.

Judge Michael Heath discharged the jury of eight women and four men for legal reasons on August 13.

A retrial is to be held on a later date.
