Gunmen terrorising Hunter businesses

POLICE are hunting as many as four gunmen who are terrorising businesses with a series of violent armed robberies across the Hunter.

Staff at the Adamstown post office were the latest to be threatened, this time as a shotgun was used to rob them of a small amount of cash on Tuesday afternoon.

The suspect forced his way behind a security counter, smashing a door in the process.

Newcastle City detectives are investigating links between the Adamstown robbery and the targeting of the Broadmeadow post office on October 1, where a man with a similar description robbed two staff of takings.

Tuesday’s bandit was described as beingaged about 25 to 35-years-old with a stocky build. He was last seen wearinga long-sleeved light-coloured business shirt, long trousers and a “Panama” style hat with a light-coloured face covering.

It is the latest attack in a worrying trend across the Hunter, where there have been at least seven robberies involving guns since the Broadmeadow heist –including four in six days.

The Newcastle Herald understands some of the hold-ups appear linked, although the Scone bank robbery on November 27 and the targeting of Dominos Pizza at Newcastle West on two days earlier appear to be robberies by gunmen ononce-only missions.

But detectives are also investigating whether the gunmen are targeting businesses across the Hunter and rural areas as they pass through.

The Sydney-based Robbery and Serious Crime Squad have taken a keen interest in several of the jobs, including the robberies of two Henny Penny stores at Edgeworth and Wallsend, and the brazen morning heist of an East Maitland camping store.

Those three robberies may be the work of the same bandit.

At East Maitland, staff at Kangaroo Tent City and BBQs Warehousewere approached by the gunman in the loading dock of the warehouse, near the intersection of New England Highway and Chelmsford Drive, just after 9am.

PIZZA: The suspect in the Dominos pizza armed robbery at Newcastle West on November 18. He told staff he had a gun in his bag. Picture: NSW Police.

He threatened them and told staff to open a safe andwas seen leaving in a silver Ford Falcon.
