Police have charged two 18 year old women following an alleged armed robbery at a service station in Bundall last night.

Around 8.35pm the pair entered the Ashmore Road store and attempted to buy a number of items. They left the store, then one returned a short time later while the other woman waited outside.

It is alleged the woman approached the counter and produced a knife before stealing a small quantity of goods and leaving.

Police attended and the two women were located nearby and taken into custody without incident. Police seized two small flick knives and a quantity of drugs (clonazepam and pseudoephedrine).

An 18 year old Benowa woman was charged with one count each of stealing, possessing dangerous drugs, unlawful possession of controlled drug and possession of a knife.

A second 18 year old Benowa woman was charged with one count each of armed robbery and stealing.

They are both due to appear in Southport Magistrates Court today.
