Tweed Council to sponsor community events

Police are appealing for witnesses to a ram raid at a petrol station at Hastings Point in the early hours of yesterday morning.

About 3:10am on Wednesday, three males drove their ute into the petrol station on Tweed Coast Road and then reversed it through the window of the store.

The men attempted to open an ATM using a sledgehammer but after failing to access the machine they attempted to remove it by reversing the ute into the shop several times.

The men failed to remove the ATM and drove off in the ute.

Detectives from Tweed/Byron Local Area Command are investigating the incident and a crime scene has been established at the petrol station.

Police are now looking for a white Mazda BT-50 ute believed to have been used in the ram raid.

The ute, with Queensland registration 266-RYK, was confirmed stolen from Rochedale in Queensland about 3:30am on Monday November 12.

Investigations into the matter are continuing and anyone with information about the ram raid, the identity of the men or the whereabouts of the ute is asked to contact police. 

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or https://www1.police.nsw.gov.au/.
