Two men will appear in court Thursday after armed robberies were committed overnight on October 16-17 in the Monaro Police District.
On Tuesday about 11.15pm, two men entered a service station at Eaglehawk in NSW and threatened an attendant with a knife. The men escaped with cash, cigarettes and a cordless phone.
Then, about 3am Wednesday, two men entered a Queanbeyan service station armed with a knife, and threatened an attendant. The men fled with cash, cigarettes, a laptop computer and phones.
No one was physically injured during the robberies, but officers from Monaro Police District were called to both incidents to investigate.
Police arrested two men at a licensed club in Queanbeyan about 5.15am on Wednesday and seized a hire car.
Police will allege that officers searched and seized several items from the vehicle which will undergo further forensic analysis.
The two men, from the ACT and aged 24 and 26, were taken to Queanbeyan Police Station where they were charged with robbery while armed in company (x 2).
They were refused bail to appear at Queanbeyan Local Court on Thursday October 18.
