ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery which occurred at Canberra Cellars in Belconnen last night (Monday, June 11).

About 10.55pm a man entered the store on Luxton Street in Belconnen armed with a knife. He approached a staff member and demanded he place the till into a black duffel bag he had placed on the counter. The staff member complied with the demand and placed the tray from the till containing a sum of cash into the bag. The offender then left the store and was seen running towards Totterdell Street.

The offender is described as approximately 183cm (6’) tall, with a slim build. He was wearing a dark coloured hooded jumper, dark coloured pants and had a white mask covering his face. He was also wearing a pair of white gloves.

Anyone who may have witnessed any suspicious activity near Canberra Cellars in Belconnen around 11.00pm last night or is able to assist with the investigation is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Were they still open at 10.55pm? Doesn’t liquor trading cease at 10pm?

I think it’s actually 11pm, if such a restriction still applies.

AHA! Arrest all Japanese taxi drivers living in Belconnen.

White gloves… obviously not his first rodeo. Which says to me that the cops would know who he was by his prints along with where to pick him up.

Just goes to show even those with borderline retardation can learn.
