Four armed teens arrested after Weston robbery

By workexpboy - 30 November 2011 25

Two 13-year-old boys and two male youths, aged 16 and 17, were arrested by ACT Policing this morning (Wednesday 30 November) for an armed robbery at a service station in Weston overnight.

Police will allege the four youths, two armed with firearms, entered the Caltex Service Station on Brierly Street in Weston and approached the counter, demanding cash. They stole the till and cigarettes, and were seen leaving in a silver-coloured Toyota Hilux.

The vehicle was found by police a short time later, abandoned in Tepper Crescent in Kambah. Immediate checks on taxi movements by a Woden General Duties patrol revealed a taxi had picked up four passengers from the same area.

The Woden patrol stopped the taxi in Gordon, and identified the four youths from the earlier armed robbery. They were arrested and taken to City Police Station where they are being interviewed by police.

Specialist Response and Security members recovered the two firearms used by the youths in the armed robbery following a search of the area.

The arrest of the four youths was the result of a collaborative ACT Policing response, including members from Woden and Tuggeranong General Duties patrols, Specialist Response and Security, Criminal Investigations and Police Operations.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to the armed robbery at the Caltex Service Station to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the website at www.act.crimestoppers.com.au . Information can be provided anonymously.

Mental note: Don’t get picked up at the getaway car by a taxi.

They should have just hopped in the back of a police van and saved themselves the trouble!

This is what happens when ADD-affected kids lose focus during mum or dad’s “how to rob a petrol station” speech.

Also, I don’t want to know what kind of inbreeding these people are engaging in to produce kids with four arms.

Maybe they were just p*ssed off that after a week, the front pumps are still out of action?? The queues have been unbelievable, though I imagine probably not so much at that time of night…

I think they need a real gene hunt. Catalogue all the bogans with an iq under 30 and have a family history of crime, then photograph them before they commit offences. In fact, we could set up a free tattoo service in prisons, so if they re-offend we can easily identify them….
