OPINION: Australia’s COVID-19 fantasy could’ve been real

Getting too caught up in the details can mean that we are distracted, says political commentator Andrew Street – we need to step back to ask the bigger question of why we’re at this point at all.

Police say that at about 5.20am Saturday (26 June), officers from Tweed-Byron Police District were called to a carpark on Tweed Coast Road, Cabarita Beach, to reports of a robbery.

Police were told two males, armed with handguns, forced entry into a caravan and
threatened a man and woman, aged 35 and 30 as well as an eight-year-old girl; demanding phone and the vehicle’s keys before fleeing empty-handed in a customised
flatbed ute or small truck.

While shaken, the occupants of the caravan and their pet dog were uninjured.

A crime scene was established as officers commence investigations into the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Police wish to speak with two males who they believe may be able to assist with their
inquiries. The first is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 183cm tall and
of a thin build wearing a fluoro jacket, while the other is described as being of Caucasian
appearance, about 176cm tall and of a medium build wearing a dark hooded jumper.

Anyone with information or dashcam vision from the area around the time and earlier, is
urged to contact Tweed Heads Police Station on (07) 5506 9499 or Crime Stoppers.
