ARMED ROBBERY HOLD-UP



FOUR men armed with a variety of weapons escaped with cash and a car after an armed hold-up at Boambee's Mobil service station at 3.30am on Sunday morning.

No one was injured during the incident.

The men, who were wearing dark clothes and kept their faces covered with balaclavas, threatened the female service station employee and demanded money.

The quartet, who were armed with what were believed to be two sawn-off firearms, one long firearm, a knife and a baseball bat, escaped with a quantity of cash and cigarettes.

The men were last seen immediately after the hold-up travelling south in a white 1995 EL Ford Falcon sedan which they had stolen from a woman customer in the service station carpark minutes earlier.

Coffs Harbour police were continuing their inquiries late yesterday afternoon, but the four men were still at large.
