No strong leads on Tweed robberies despite CCTV footage
THIEVES who struck Service NSW and 7-Eleven at Tweed Heads South earlier this year are still on the loose.
On May 30 about 3.20am robbers stormed the 7-Eleven in Minjungbal Dr armed with large knives, threatening a staff member and taking off with money from the cash register.
And on July 18 thieves broke into Service NSW in Rivendell early in the morning while it was still under construction, stealing tradesmen's tools, computers and other electronic equipment.
CCTV footage of both incidents was released to the public, but police from Tweed Byron LAC have been unable to catch the crooks.
"We haven't got any leads on that crime," Tweed-Byron crime manager Inspector Brendon Cullen said, referring to the Service NSW robbery.
"But we would like to know who they are."
However, Insp Cullen said Tweed Police did have some leads to follow up on the 7-Eleven robbery.
Insp Cullen called for assistance from the Tweed community, asking them to call CrimeStoppers on 1800 333 000 if they had any information which may relate to the robberies. Callers can choose to remain anonymous.
Police have not indicated that the robberies are linked or related in any way.
