Coast detectives arrest 10 people in a month

SUNSHINE Coast detectives have arrested 10 people in the past month for robbery offences, including an armed robbery committed in June.

Two Brisbane men, a 23 and 22-year-old, were the most recent offenders to be charged yesterday.

The men were charged with the armed robbery of the Bowman Rd Service Station at Caloundra on June 10.

Police alleged a man armed with a knife entered the service station and threatened the attendant and demanded cash at 10am.

On receiving a sum of the cash, the man fled to a waiting vehicle where the co-offender was waiting.

Both men are in custody and are due to appear before the Caloundra Magistrates Court on January 9, 2013.

Sunshine Coast District CIB Officer in Charge Detective Senior Sergeant Daren Edwards said officers had made 10 arrests for people aged 15-29 in relation to a number of robbery related crimes committed in the North coast region.

"This is not only a reassuring message for the victims of a crime that the perpetrators have been arrested for the crime, but the message that if you do the crime you will do the time," Det Snr Sgt Edwards said.

"It's only a matter of time,"
