Caucasian with a knife driving a white Commodore in Holt

By johnboy - 13 July 2013 13

ACT Policing is investigating an aggravated robbery which occurred in Holt this morning (Saturday, July 13).

About 11am the alleged offender, a man, entered the Spar Supermarket in Holt armed with a knife. He threatened staff, demanding cash and cigarettes.

The staff member complied, handing over a sum of cash and cigarettes. The man was seen getting into a white Holden Commodore with ACT registration.

The alleged offender is described as Caucasian in appearance, aged in his early 20s, between 178cm (5’ 10”) and 183cm (6’) tall, with a slim build and short black hair.

He was wearing a black T-shirt and jeans, with black canvas tennis shoes and a black scarf over his face. He was seen carrying a green enviro shopping bag.

A person matching this description had been seen at Higgins Shops earlier this morning.

Police would like to speak with any witnesses from Holt and Higgins Shops who they have not yet spoken with.

Anyone who may be able to assist police with the investigation is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Why would you rob Holt … Didn’t they just announce they are in receivership and owe $2.5million?

Interesting…do you have a link? I’ve used this supermarket for years now, although far less in the past few years. I noticed a while back that the shelves were far less stocked than they used to be, there’s a lot of empty space on the shelves these days.

Combined with this http://the-riotact.com/west-belconnen-crime-spree/109768 story though, it’s been a pretty crappy few days for the owners.

Read it in last Sundays paper. Quick google search gave me this link

I second that. An excellent and entirely non-racist Australianism.

Except we’re not actually white

My partner is Asian and she is much whiter than me. I’m Caucasian and never try for a tan, just “normal”*.

Well, we are not Caucasian either. Do even know where Caucasus is?

It’s a mountainous region in the former Soviet Union as I recall (I’m not going to bother checking), Apparently in former times when quaint notions of racial superiority held sway it was proposed as the place of origin of the non swarthy Indo-Eurpeans and the name just stuck. Your point?

Isn’t that near where Noah’s Ark apparently lies?

p.s. I hate to be pedantic (no, actually, I love it), but it doesn’t say he was driving.
