Police have just arrested a 15 year old boy on Fisher Road N toward Cromer in relation to an alleged armed robbery of the United service station on Dee Why Strand last night.
The arrest occurred just after 1pm today, Sunday April 16, after a resident alerted searching police to the teen present in her home’s side passageway.
Police including the dog unit had been searching for the boy throughout Dee Why and Cromer for a number of hours.
The arrest related to an incident at 7.20pm last night (Saturday 15 April) when officers attached to Northern Beaches Police Area Command were told a male – allegedly armed with a firearm – had threatened an employee before leaving the scene with cash.
Police established a crime scene and commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident.
The 15 year old was charged with three outstanding warrants, shoplifting and robbery whilst armed. His bail was refused to appear at a Childrens Court on Monday 17 April 2023.
