Men sus­pected in four rob­beries

Isis Town and Country - - News - By CAROLYN ARCHER

PO­LICE are ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion to help iden­tify two men they be­lieve are re­spon­si­ble for a spate of rob­beries.

De­tec­tive Se­nior Sergeant Joe Hil­dred, of the Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion Branch, said the of­fences took place at the Booyal Road­house, the Wowan Road­house and two shops in Monto across three con­sec­u­tive nights.

He said po­lice were ap­peal­ing to any­one who might know where the men were stay­ing to come for­ward.

“If car­a­van park, hos­tel or ho­tel own­ers have seen two men trav­el­ling in a Holden Cap­tiva, then let us know,” he said.

The first of­fence oc­curred early on Satur­day when thou­sands of dol­lars of cig­a­rettes were stolen from the Booyal Road­house.

The fol­low­ing day at 3.30am, two male sus­pects ar­rived at the Wowan Road­house on the Le­ich­hardt Hwy in the Cap­tiva SUV.

Both of­fend­ers wore masks and head­wear and en­tered the premises by break­ing a fi­bro wall panel on the front wall.

Det Sen Sgt Hil­dred said both of­fend­ers ap­peared to be slim to pro­por­tion­ate build and 160–70cm tall.

“One of­fender was wear­ing a base­ball cap and the other sus­pect was wear­ing a hoodie,” he said.

“It is un­known at this stage if the ve­hi­cle of in­ter­est is a stolen ve­hi­cle.”

The third lo­ca­tion tar­geted was Monto, where cash was stolen from two busi­nesses early Mon­day.

Be­tween 2am and 3am, a side door at the St Vin­cent de Paul build­ing in Lis­ter St was jem­mied open.

The other busi­ness tar­geted by the thieves was Monto Ir­ri­ga­tion and Plumb­ing in Lis­ter St.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can phone po­lice on 4153 9111 or Crime Stop­pers anony­mously on 1800 333 000.
