Arrest in NSW for Qld theft

ROCKHAMPTON detectives went to Lismore, New South Wales, this week to arrest a woman who allegedly played a part in an armed robbery in the region earlier this year.

Sacha Clark, 18, has been charged with one count of armed robbery following the October hold-up of the Oaks Service Station.

Police allege she picked up the bandits who held up the station, on the Rockhampton-Yeppoon Rd with rifles.

It's alleged after the armed robbery the bandits used a stolen car to make their getaway. This car was then dumped at the Mt Jim Crow car park, where Clark allegedly picked them up.

Yesterday Rockhampton police CIB officer-in-charge Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Steve Paskin said detectives went to Lismore on Monday.

They were granted the right to extradite Clark to Queensland after a hearing in Lismore. Clark was bailed after appearing in the Southport Magistrates Court on the Gold Coast on Tuesday.

She is set to reappear in court on Monday, February 13.

Det Snr Sgt Paskin said the charge followed thorough investigative work by police.

Bradley Thomas Kuhl, 21, was remanded in custody after appearing in Rockhampton Magistrates Court in November in relation to the hold-up.

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

It's alleged he pointed a rifle at a 17-year-old school girl, who was working at the service station.

Police investigations continue with the second bandit yet to be identified.
