Man faces three robbery charges
A MAN has been arrested after he allegedly robbed a Tweed Heads shopping centre store overnight.
A police spokesman said about 5.45pm a 54-year-old man went into a store at Centro Tweed Shopping Centre and demanded money from a store clerk.
The clerk handed over the cash and the man fled the scene on foot.
"Tweed detectives started their investigations and arrested the man at a motel on Minjungbal Dr," he said.
Tweed police were assisted by a Queensland police dog and handler.
The police spokesman said he did not know where the alleged robber was from.
The man has been charged with three counts of robbery with a firearm.
He will appear at Tweed Heads Local Court today.
