A second man has been extradited from Queensland and charged in relation to an alleged robbery and aggravated break and enter in Armidale earlier this year.
In the early hours of Wednesday 13 April 2016, three men allegedly forced their way into a home on Rockvale Road, Armidale, and threatened the property’s 40-year-old resident.
The three allegedly ransacked the home and stole a number of items before fleeing the scene.
Police were called and attended the location, and an investigation into the matter commenced.
Shortly after 8am on Wednesday 13 April 2016, police arrested a 28-year-old man allegedly in connection with the incident. He has since been charged with robbery in company and aggravated break, enter and steal.
The man was refused bail and remanded into custody and is next due to appear before Armidale Local Court on Wednesday 8 June 2016.
Following further investigations, detectives from Armidale attended Southport, Queensland, on Thursday 2 June 2016, after a 28-year-old man was detained by Queensland Police by virtue of a NSW arrest warrant.
The man was extradited to NSW yesterday (Friday 3 June 2016) and taken to Tweed Heads Police Station where he was charged with robbery in company and aggravated break, enter and steal.
He was formally refused bail to appear before Tweed Heads Local Court today (Saturday 4 June 2016).
