Attempted armed robbery at Murwillumbah service station

Police are appealing for information following an attempted armed robbery at a service station on Tweed Valley Way, Murwillumbah.

Police were called to the service station at around 2:50pm on 24 October following reports of an attempted armed robbery. At the scene, officers were told that a man had entered the store and produced a firearm before threatening staff and firing a shot into the ceiling.

No one was injured, and the man fled empty-handed in a white Holden utility. A short time later, police attempted to stop the Holden on Byangum Road.

When it failed to stop as directed, a pursuit was initiated; however, it was terminated shortly after for safety reasons.

CCTV images of the man and vehicle that police believe can assist with their investigation.

The man depicted is shown wearing a white shirt with a black chest motif, black pants, a blue face mask, a red Coca-Cola bucket hat, and white ‘Nike’ sneakers.

The vehicle, a white Holden Colorado utility with no licence plates, appears to have damage to the front left-hand side wheel arch.

Officers from Tweed/Byron Police District have commenced an investigation into the incident and are urging anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers at 1800 333 000.
