POLICE are investigating an armed robbery at the Coffs Harbour south McDonalds this morning.

Staff at the outlet were left traumatised after two armed men entered the rear of the store this morning around 5.45am.

Police have established the men produced a hand gun and what was thought to be a replica firearm and demanded cash before they made a getaway.

A crime scene was established at the location and witnesses were interviewed.

This latest hold-up follows a spate of armed robberies on the Coffs Coast involving firearms over the past fornight.

A service station at Toormina was held up last Wednesday by offenders armed with a pistol and tyre levers.

The Clybucca service station fell victim to two men, one who was armed with a handgun last Sunday night.

Then a day later there was a robbery at the Dominos Pizza store in Kempsey.

Police are investigating links between these robberies and a hold-up at the Coffs Harbour Hungry Jacks outlet in Bray St on Thursday, May 3.

On that occasion five men stormed the store, armed with a handgun, a crow bar and knives.

Police said they are investigating links between the Hungry Jacks, McDonalds and Clybucca robberies as well as several other similar offences in the Taree area.
