Teen facing robbery charge

A TEENAGE boy has been charged over a Banora Point armed robbery, and an alleged accomplice was assisting police with inquiries yesterday afternoon.

Police said two males entered a Pacific Highway convenience store just before 6pm on Thursday armed with a replica gun and knife and bailed up the female shop- keeper.

The pair allegedly forced the employee to empty the till as they stashed money and a dozen packets of cigarettes into a plastic bag, then ran from the scene.

One of the alleged offenders was arrested at a Tweed Heads shopping centre not long after the robbery.

The 16-year-old was charged with robbery while armed with an offensive weapon and in company.

He was kept in custody overnight before being granted bail at Tweed Heads Children’s Court yesterday.
