A man from Lynn has been charged with 17 counts of fraud for failing to pay at petrol stations.

Daniel Brown, 22, of Guanock Terrace will face 17 charges of fraud by making false representation when he appears before King’s Lynn Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, February 19.

Brown was arrested and charged on Friday for the offences which relate to 17 separate incidents of filling up a vehicle with fuel and stating that he has no means to pay. It is then alleged that he failed to clear the debt.

The alleged incidents took place between May and October 2013. Fourteen of the charges related to petrol stations in Lynn, one in West Lynn, one in Hunstanton and one in Norwich.
