Jury acquits 23-year-old of aiding armed robbery at servo

A 23-YEAR-OLD man has been found not guilty of aiding the armed robbery of a Rockhampton service station.

Dane Nils Petersen faced trial in the District Court this week.

The court heard Petersen's mate held up the Yaamba Rd Caltex with a syringe on June 21, 2011.

Evidence revealed the defendant and another man, Brendon Alexander Hudson-Miller, went with the offender to the store and waited for him while he committed the offence.

However, defence barrister Ross LoMonaco submitted there was no proof Petersen knew what was going on.

The jury delivered their verdict yesterday afternoon.

Petersen was acquitted of the charge.

Hudson-Miller has pleaded guilty.
