Hewett store robbed

POLICE are searching for a man and woman who robbed a convenience store in the Hewett Shopping Centre on Saturday night.

It is alleged that the pair, wearing masks and hooded jumpers, threatened staff at the Kingfisher Drive business and made away with an amount of cash and cigarettes, at around 7.15pm.

They drove off in a dark grey BMW X5, believed to be displaying stolen number plates, with the registration S765-AZM.

No-one was physically injured in the incident.

Police have described the woman as 172cm tall, of medium build (around 80kg), and with two-tone coloured hair (blonde and brown).

She was wearing a light green hooded jumper with a white Adidas logo, black Adidas track-pants with three white stripes running down the side, and black gloves with grey writing on the knuckles.

The man is described as 170cm tall and of skinny build (around 70kg).

He was wearing a grey jumper with black sleeves and a black ‘V’ logo – or something similar – on the front, black pants with a red pinstripe running down the side, and white sandshoes.

Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident, or has any information that may assist the investigation, to call Crime Stoppers (1800 333 000) or report online (crimestopperssa.com.au).
