Jewellery suppliers robbed in carpark

Two jewellery suppliers allegedly were robbed last week of jewellery and cash after leaving a retail store in Sydney and heading for their car in an adjacent carpark.

According to a local police report, authorities staged a man-hunt for two armed bandits around the Mirvac-owned Rhodes Shopping Centre on Rider Boulevard in Rhodes, near the Olympic complex at Homebush, where the heist took place.

They are yet to be captured and are said to have escaped in a green Honda Accord with a cache of jewellery reported to be “very valuable".

The victims, two male salespeople, aged 34 and 38, were returning to their car about 6pm on Sunday 19 May after visiting a jewellery store inside the shopping centre.

Burwood police issued a statement, saying: “The offenders, both with their faces concealed and armed with a firearm and a large knife, threatened the pair before stealing a large sum of cash and valuable jewellery.”

The robbery sparked a large investigation involving police from Burwood Local Area Command, crime scene examiners, the dog squad, the highway patrol and PolAir, Burwood Local Area Command duty officer Greg Thomas told Sydney Morning Herald.

‘‘It was pretty much everyone except the water police,’’ he said.

He said the majority of the property stolen was jewellery, with ‘‘an amount of cash’’ taken as well.

No-one was injured during the robbery.
