15 year old charged over heist

By johnboy - 22 August 2013 2

ACT Policing has arrested a 15 year-old Latham boy after an early morning robbery in Melba today (Thursday, 22 August).

About 5.35am, three offenders entered the 7-11 service station on Chinner Crescent, armed with a knife. They threatened the attendant and demanded cash.

The staff member complied, with a sum of cash being stolen from the cash register. The offenders left the store in a blue Ford Falcon.

Police searched the area and located the vehicle, which has been seized for analysis. One of the offenders was observed running on foot. He was arrested, and conveyed to the ACT Watch House. He will face court later this morning charged with aggravated robbery.

Investigations are continuing to identify the remaining two offenders.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via Information can be provided anonymously.

Hope he gets 5 years in prison for that. And to make sure the idiot doesnt get any tips in prison keep in solitary for the whole time.

What the hell is going on? 15 year old kids doing armed robs on one side of town and service station blags on the other?

Armed robbery isn’t a trivial thing. I shudder to think of what the parents must be like. And I shudder just as much to think of what these kids must be like. I wouldn’t want to run across them while I’m out walking my dog.
