Wow! British singer and her brother are like night and day. Just a few days ago, on May 10th, Cheryl Cole’s brother was reportedly arrested for an armed robbery in an attempt to steal some money from a post office in England. Shame, shame, busted!

As a biography, not much is known about Andrew Leighton, also known as Andrew Tweed. He is from Newcastle, England and is 29 years old. He is most-known for being the brother of Britain’s “the nation’s new sweetheart” singer Cheryl Cole.

According to reports, Cheryl Cole’s brother has reportedly been arrested in connection with the armed robbery that took place at an England post office. The raid included four men and one female, all of which are detained by authorities to investigate the case further. It is said that two men carried a gun and a machete while threatending staff members and customer before stealing “thousands of pounds”.

Even though no shots were fired and reportedly no one was injured, during the robbery, two female customers fled and ran into a nearby store. Priya Mishra, store owner says:

“One ran into the back and hid. Another started saying something I couldn’t understand. She was in shock.”

A representative for the police reveals, “A vehicle and firearm have been recovered. We’re pursuing lines of enquiry.”

This isn’t the first offense for Andrew. In November of 2009, he was arrested and ordered to court where he “admitted to excess alcohol, not having a driving licence and no insurance.” Which constituted a breach of an outstanding suspended sentence.

Speaking on his troubled past, he credits his sister Cheryl for wanting to help him but says, “I’m too far gone”.

Ouch, this doesn’t sound good at all. Tell us what you think about Andrew Tweedy, Cheryl Cole’s brother in the comment box. Also, see pictures and a video below.
