Tooradin armed robbery


AN armed robber threatened an attendant at a Tooradin service station with a shotgun last week.

The man walked into the South Gippsland Highway servo about 3.15am, Tuesday 12 February. He went to the fridge, chose a milk drink and asked the attendant for a packet of cigarettes. He then pulled out a sawn-off shotgun and forced the attendant to hand over cash and cigarettes before fleeing the store. 

The man is described as Caucasian, in his 30s, slim build and wearing a Furphy beanie, black zip hoodie, black T-shirt with NXP on the front and jeans.
