Police hunting for holdup culprits

POLICE are still hunting the robbers of Rockhampton's Great Western Hotel and Yaamba Rd Caltex service station.

On Sunday night both venues were targeted.

At the Great Western, offenders broke into the hotel through a sealed window.

A sum of money was taken.

Staff at the Caltex store were held up by a man carrying a knife, who ripped out the cash till before dumping it after being chased by three witnesses.
