He was also charged by police with numerous other offences

A 32-year-old man has been charged with numerous offences by police after a hit and run near a shopping centre in Grimsby.

Police were called to Frederick Ward Way during the afternoon of Thursday, September 26. Initially, two men and a women were arrested on suspicion of burglary and failing to stop for the police.

The three were arrested when the car they were travelling in crashed close to the Freshney Place Shopping Centre.

A burglary on Marian Way in Waltham was also reported to police that morning and at the time police suspected the three arrested of involvement in the offence.

  • Burglary on Marian Way
  • Five counts of fraud
  • Dangerous driving, driving without a licence and driving without insurance
  • Failing to stop and failing to provide a sample following a crash on Frederick Ward Way in Grimsby

Peterson was transferred to appear at Grimsby Magistrates’ Court on Saturday, September 28 and was remanded in custody to appear at Crown Court at a later date.

A 25 year-old woman and a 47 year-old man, who were previously arrested, have been released pending further investigation.
