Police issue images of suspected bandits



POLICE need your help in tracking down bandits responsible for three robberies in Coffs Harbour.

Detectives investigating a link between all three want to catch the robbers before they have the opportunity to strike again.

At midnight on December 23, two men, one of whom was armed with a screwdriver, made off with money from Domino's Pizza in Gordon Street after climbing over the counter and confronting two employees.

About 24 hours later, two men walked into Pelican Beach Resort reception and removed a cash tray after approaching a female employee in a rear room.

Police have provided these computer images of the pair in the hope someone can recognise them.

One of the men is described as Caucasian in appearance, 185cm to 190cm tall, aged 20 to 25, with brown hair, a tanned complexion, a tongue stud, wearing leather gloves and a baseball cap.

The other is described as Caucasian in appearance, aged 17 to 18, with a thin build, 170cm tall, with a fair complexion, wearing a hooded jacket.

On Saturday night at 10.15pm, three males ran into the reception at Nautilus Beach Resort and demanded cash from the night auditor.

All had hooded jumpers covering their faces and were wearing baseball caps and jeans.

One of them was holding a long, skinny object which police believe was either a screwdriver or a car aerial.

They grabbed keys to a safety deposit box and stole cash before fleeing.

One is described as Caucasian in appearance, having a thin build, aged 18 to 20, and 175cm tall.

The other two are described as Caucasian in appearance, having thin builds, aged 18 to 20.

Detectives are keen to hear from anyone who may have information about the robberies.
