A series of violent robberies, including a post office raid where staff were threatened with a meat cleaver results in two women being charged.

It was a terrifying robbery on the 4th June at Holly Bank post office in Haunch Lane, Kings Heath which sparked West Midlands Police to issue an appeal to try and trace the two women who made off with the till takings.

On Monday the 19th of June, 19-year-olds Molly Evans and Rene Cardin were arrested on suspicion of robbery, burglary, theft and assault – after the vehicle they were traveling in was stopped in Highgate Street, Birmingham, by Traffic officers.

Rene Cardin’s 21-year-old brother, Tyrone Cardin − was also arrested from the vehicle.

All three were charged and appeared at Birmingham Magistrates Court Wednesday (21st June) where they were remanded into prison ahead of a pending crown court appearance.

It’s alleged the trio were also behind a robbery at Simply Local in Harlech Close, Bartley Green, on 31st May where cash, scratch cards and cigarettes were stolen.

They have also been charged with a burglary in Rebecca Drive, Selly Oak, on June 16th and three violent robberies the following day on women waiting at bus stops in Church Road and Hob Moor Road, in Yardley, and Coventry Road in Small Heath.

Rene and Tyrone Cardin − from Cowles Croft and William Booth Lane, respectively − and Evans from Larch Walk, Yardley, are all set to appear at Birmingham Crown Court on 19th July.
