Burglary charges dropped against five men arrested after Yate incident

FIVE people arrested after an alleged armed burglary at a home in Yate are no longer facing charges.

Santiago Pablo, aged 31, of Cater Drive in Yate, Anthony Docherty, 38, of Red Hill, Bromley, Daniel Gray, 32, of Bark Hart Road, Bromley, Adrian Kupperblatt, 62, of Meadowside, Greenwich and Michael Peters, 32, of Eltham Green Road, Greenwich, all appeared in court on March 2 charged with aggravated burglary, in relation to an incident in Stanshawes Drive in the early hours of February 29.

However the case was subsequently discontinued by the Crown Prosecution Service, ahead of a scheduled appearance by the men at Bristol Crown Court on April 8.

A CPS spokesperson said: “Following a careful review of all available evidence, we made the decision to stop proceedings as there was no longer a realistic prospect of conviction.”
