Man sentenced over Nowra robberies

Wollongong man Kiall Stephen Powell, also known as Kiall Nebauer, has been sentenced to 12 months in jail for a series of robberies committed on the NSW south coast in March.

Powell targeted Nowra Jewellers, Prouds the Jewellers Nowra and Gold City Jewellers within in the space of two weeks, stealing $18,000 worth of product.

Each time, he engaged staff for up to 30 minutes under the guise of purchasing a gift for his partner. He would ask to try on or hold one or more items, and when the salesperson was distracted, would run outside to a waiting car.

Powell was arrested on 26 March and pleaded guilty to multiple charges of larceny. While none of the stolen property – a 9-carat gold bracelet valued at $1,399 and three chains worth $2,799, $4,500 and $10,500 – have been recovered, Powell has been ordered by the court to repay the value of the jewellery he took.
