No links in chain of thefts: police
POLICE are maintaining there are no links between Saturday night's armed robbery at North Beach Bowling Club and recent incidents at the Scotts Head Bowling and Recreation Club and the Catholic Club, Coffs Harbour.
On Saturday night four masked men forced their way into the club shortly after closing time.
They were armed with a knife, a crowbar, a screwdriver and a piece of wood.
The previous Saturday four men smashed their way into the Scotts Head Club brandishing a knife, a crowbar, a screwdriver and a brick.
Then the following night, Sunday, December 21, three men robbed the Coffs Harbour Catholic Club using a brick and a plank of wood.
North Beach Bowling Club manager, Craig Wykes, said he was unable to release any details about the theft due to ongoing police enquiries.
“All I can say is no staff were injured, we've increased our security and I have nothing but praise for the professional way in which staff handled themselves,” Mr Wykes said.
