Alleged armed robbery at Mogo by a man in a ‘ghillie’ suit

Police are appealing for witnesses following an alleged armed robbery by a man in a ‘ghillie’ suit in Mogo.

About 12am today (Wednesday 11 September), the night console operator at a service station on Sydney Street, Mogo, was attending the fuel pumps when he was allegedly approached by an unknown male in a green camouflage ‘ghillie’ suit.

The man allegedly produced a firearm before demanding cash and cigarettes from the male employee and fleeing on foot across the Princes Highway.

Police arrived at the scene shortly after and established a crime scene, before seizing a number of items for forensic examination.

No one was injured during the incident.

The man is described as being approximately 175cm tall, of medium build, and was wearing a green camouflage ‘ghillie’ suit and black face net at the time of the incident.

Police would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed a motorbike in the area around that time.

Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to contact Batemans Bay police on (02) 4472 0099 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Police inquiries are continuing.
