Police Wrap – 20 July

By 20 July 2009 6

1. Just think how bad it will get if smokes go up to $20?

    ACT Policing arrested a 36-year-old Braddon woman yesterday (July 19) after an aggravated robbery at a service station in Braddon.

    About 2.15pm police attended the Caltex service station, Lonsdale Street, Braddon after reports of an aggravated robbery.

    A female offender allegedly approached a staff member and requested a packet of cigarettes. The staff member retrieved the cigarettes and placed them on the counter before the offender allegedly threatened the staff member with a knife, took the cigarettes and left the store.

    A short time later, police located a female matching the description of the offender at the intersection of Lonsdale Street and Elouera Street, Braddon allegedly in possession of the stolen cigarettes and a knife believed to have been used in the robbery.

    The alleged offender was arrested and conveyed to the City Regional Watch house where she was charged with aggravated robbery and will face the ACT Magistrates Court today (July 20).

2. Armed robbery works better at 3am with blokes and guns:

    ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an armed robbery which occurred at the Caltex Service Station on O’Halloran Circuit, Kambah, July 20.

    Around 3.15am two males, one armed with a firearm and the other with a knife, entered the service station and stole cigarettes, chocolates and a small sum of cash. No-one was harmed during the robbery.

    The first offender, carrying the firearm, is described as wearing black pants, a dark top and gloves.

    The second offender, carrying the knife, is described as wearing grey jeans and a light-coloured hooded jumper. Both men had balaclavas over their faces.

    General Duties officers, Special Response and Security officers and Detectives from ACT Policing’s Territory Investigations Group conducted a search of the area. AFP Forensic Services also attended the scene.

    Police are appealing for any anyone who may have been in the area of O’Halloran Circuit, Kambah, between 2.30am 4am to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Pffft.

Just think how worse it will be when your heavy smoker colleagues go cold turkey? At least around the “third day hump”.

I have little sympathy for smokers. Unless your older than about 50 there’s no way you couldn’t know what it does to you.

Stole smokes, chocolates and cash. Did they as for them in that order?

But what is with armed robbery in Canberra at the moment. Soon we will get a story about someone holding up a servo for a litre of milk and the canberra times.

Yes, exactly… *sigh*. Good on them, though, for quitting …

It is getting that way, isn’t it…? Either the well being of people are suffering to the extent of being desperate to force them to act that way, or people just don’t care any more? The start of the reign of anarchism? Perhaps Canberra is becoming a metropolitan place, like any other cities in Australia, to accommodate the direst of crimes perhaps?

They probably just got the munchies. But Jivrashia has a point, are people just getting more desperate?
