AFTER allegedly pulling a rifle on a schoolgirl and stealing cash, Bradley Thomas Kuhl went home and got high in front of the TV.

The 21-year-old appeared before Rockhampton Magistrates Court charged yesterday with the armed robbery of the Oaks service station in Yeppoon on October 22.

He also faced offences relating to a burglary on October 19.

Altogether he was charged with entering premises with intent, receiving tainted property, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and possession of a drug utensil.

Kuhl's father sat in the public gallery of the court when his son applied for bail.

He was not required to enter a plea.

Police prosecutor Karen Dunham said Kuhl and his accomplice entered the service station wearing balaclavas and armed with rifles.

Kuhl allegedly pointed his rifle at a 17-year-old schoolgirl and ordered her to take a bag he handed her.

Ms Dunham said she then gave it to a fellow female employee, who Kuhl allegedly ordered to put cash from the till in the bag.

After receiving the money the pair fled in a Volvo which Kuhl told police he had earlier found with the keys in it. Ms Dunham said they dumped the car in Mt Jim Crow car park.

She said Kuhl told police after the robbery he went home and smoked cannabis while watching a movie.

The court heard he refused to tell police his accomplice's identity and how much money they stole, but said he spent it on cigarettes, alcohol and drugs.

Kuhl also allegedly broke into a Sandringham home and stole a gun safe, two antique rifles, a World War I bayonet, two cameras, a laptop and a USB stick.

Magistrate Tom Bradshaw remanded Kuhl in custody to appear in court again on December 14.

"People's lives were put at risk," he said.
