Never underestimate the audacity – or perhaps stupidity – of a thief.
Police are appealing for information after a man wearing a high-visibility jacket robbed a service station at Chinderah on Tuesday.
At about 8.30pm, a man with a knife entered the store attached to the servo on the Old Pacific Highway and demanded money from the 58-year-old male staff member.
The employee handed over cash and the robber fled the scene.
Police say he headed in a southerly direction.
No-one was injured during the incident.
The man is described as being about 170–175cm tall, and was wearing a long-sleeve high-visibility orange-and-black jacket and had a cloth over his face.
Police are urging anyone with information about this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://www1.police.nsw.gov.au/.
