A 40-year-old male security guard attended the centre finding the vehicle at the jewellery store while the three offenders were in the process of stealing a substantial amount of jewellery.

The offenders got back into their vehicle driving back out of the shopping centre with jewellery stolen from the store and were last seen heading east bound on Brisbane Road.

The security guard sustained a minor injury to his hand when the offender’s drove off.
