Police probe: Cash and cigarettes stolen in store break-in

POLICE are investigating after a notorious North Rockhampton break-in and robbery hotspot was targeted again overnight.

A Queensland Police spokesman confirmed crews were called to the FoodWorks on Main Street, Park Avenue about 6am.

He said there appeared to have been a break-in at the store, with cigarettes and cash stolen.

No one has been arrested or charged over the incident.

Investigations are ongoing.

It is not the first time the neighbourhood store has been targeted this year, with police in March arresting a man and seizing a replica gun after an alleged armed robbery.

In November, police released CCTV after another alleged armed robbery, where shop attendants were allegedly threatened with a screwdriver.
