ACT Policing investigations into a Kambah aggravated robbery on 25 June has led police to believe the incident was linked to a motor vehicle stolen between 18 and 19 June.
Around 9pm on Thursday 25 June, two men armed with firearms entered Woolworths on Marconi Crescent, Kambah. The men approached staff members making demands for cash.
The staff members complied and the two men fled the store running to a small white car being driven by a third man.
At the time of the incident, both offenders were wearing orange and black high visibility ‘hoodie’ jumpers, dark coloured pants and dark coloured face coverings.
Around 9:30pm, officers responded to a report of a vehicle fire in a small reserve located at the intersection Lambrigg Street and Hawkesbury Crescent Farrer. Further investigations have identified the car as the one used during the robbery.
Whilst the vehicle was significantly damaged during the fire, police have identified it as a white Subaru Impreza hatch with distinctive black wheels which was stolen from the driveway of a home in Monash a week earlier, between 18 and 19 June.
In addition, we would like to request the assistance from any member of the public who saw this vehicle in the vicinity of the Kambah Shopping Centre (Marconi Crescent, Kambah) or the area of Lambrigg Street and Hawkesbury Crescent, Monash between the hours of 8:00pm and 10:00pm on Thursday 25 June 2015.
