A MAN has appeared in court in relation to an alleged robbery at a Poole petrol station.

Jamie-Lee Davis is alleged to have robbed alcohol from Esso Service Station in Blandford Road, Hamworthy.

Davis, 22 and of Knole Road, Bournemouth, appeared at Poole Magistrates' Court on Friday, April 9, accused of committing the offence on December 29, 2019.

Due to the defendant being charged with robbery – an indictable only offence – the case was sent to Bournemouth Crown Court.

He did not enter a plea to the charge and he was remanded on unconditional bail, with the next hearing due to take place next month.
