ACT Policing has extradited a 31-year-old man from Cooma in relation to the aggravated robbery of the IGA Supermarket at Chapman last week.
About 6.20am last Monday (August, 19), a man entered the store on Perry Drive armed with a firearm, demanding cash.
Staff complied with the demand. The offender fled the premises with a sum of cash from the cash register. An IGA employee was assaulted during the incident.
Earlier today (August, 29) ACT Policing detectives, with assistance from New South Wales Police, executed a search warrant on a property in Cooma and seized several items, including a firearm.
NSW Police arrested the man on an ACT First Instance warrant. The man appeared in the Queanbeyan Local Court this afternoon, where his extradition to the ACT was granted.
