Shopping centres robbed minutes apart

POLICE were called to the Ngunnawal shops at about 5.30am on Thursday (July 4) following reports that two offenders in a stolen silver Toyota Prado had stolen money after a forced entry to a shop.

Forty minutes later police were called to the Forde shops following reports offenders had caused significant damage and stolen money.
