NORTH ST MARYS
A man allegedly broke into a service station with a sledge hammer last month. About 3am on Monday, August 29, police were called to a Glossop St, North St Marys, service station. The owner told the police he had located a person inside the store via his CCTV camera. Police arrested a North St Marys man, 44, who had allegedly caused extensive damage to the premises. Police allege a sledge hammer was used to break through the cement block wall to access the mechanics room before breaking into the service station itself. The man was charged with breaking and entering. He was refused bail and will appear at Penrith Local Court on October 10.
