A 47-year-old man has been extradited from Queensland in relation to two aggravated robberies which occurred at Hackett IGA Supermarket in 2005 and an O’Connor chemist in May 2007.

Detectives from ACT Policing Criminal Investigations travelled to the Gold Coast, yesterday (Thursday 13 June) seeking extradition of the man after he was arrested by Queensland police officers.

The extradition application was approved by the Southport Magistrates Court and later that afternoon police escorted the man back to the ACT where he was lodged at the ACT Watch House.

The man is expected to face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning charged with aggravated robbery, theft, ride/drive vehicle without consent and arson.
