Jewellery store armed robber gets 11 years jail

Sydney man Gregory Michael Elliott, 39, has been sentenced to more than a decade behind bars after carrying out an armed robbery of a NSW jewellery store.

Elliott, alongside two accomplices, used a firearm to hold up the Treasure Cove Jewellery Store in the town of Huskisson, on the NSW south coast, at 5pm on 12 December 2017.

They assaulted the store owner and stole both cash and jewellery before escaping in a stolen car.

The three men abandoned the vehicle and carjacked two motorists – one of whom sustained serious injuries – while being pursued by police. They later abandoned the car along a bush track while threatening police with the firearm.

The group stole another car in order to drive to Nowra, where Elliott was arrested at 2am the following day.

At the time, Inspector Deborah O’Reilly, NSW Police, said, “This is certainly an unusual crime for this area or anywhere around the country. It was a brazen offence and quite concerning. You would be hard pressed to find this type or number of offences anywhere in Australia.”

Elliott pleaded guilty to a range of charges including armed robbery, two counts of aggravated assault with intent to take a motor vehicle in company, using an offensive weapon in company to prevent detention, and aggravated break and enter.

Judge Norman Delaney sentenced him to an aggregate jail term of 11 years from 1 June 2020. Elliott faces a mandatory non-parole period of six years and eight months; he will be eligible for parole on 31 January 2027.

The other two men, Jimmaley Boney and Jack Daniel Boney, are scheduled to be tried on 9 March 2020 at Nowra District Court. Both have entered pleas of not guilty.
