Police have released vision of a vehicle, as part of an investigation into a number of burglaries and an armed robbery that occurred across the South Eastern Region over the past two days.
Around midday on Wednesday May 22, a contractor parked his vehicle at an educational facility on Beaudesert-Beenleigh Road, Bahrs Scrub, where his front and rear Queensland registration plates “392KDI” were stolen.
Around 12.35pm, a 66-year-old man returned to his home on Lumeah Avenue, Pimpama, to notice a front window-screen had been removed.
Two men then jumped out his window and ran to a blue Holden Commodore sedan bearing the stolen registration plates “392KDI” (pictured) parked in the street, before fleeing down Mirambeena Drive.
The man was not injured during the burglary. Jewellery and antiques were stolen.
Around 1.30pm, two men in the blue Holden Commodore, bearing the stolen registration plates, attended an address at Stubbin Street, Belivah. The occupant was not home at the time.
The two men forced entry to the garage, before smashing a window and leaving empty handed. The vehicle was last seen speeding down Stubbin Street towards Beenleigh-Beaudesert Road.
Around 11.45am the following day (Thursday May 23), two men forced entry to a residence on Hillside Drive at Daisy Hill, which was unoccupied at the time.
The 83-year-old resident returned home to find the two men, who were not known to him, sitting in a blue Holden Commodore sedan parked in his driveway. The elderly man pulled onto his driveway, where he was confronted by one of the men armed with a knife.
The man threatened the 83-year-old and demanded his car-keys. The 83-year-old complied and the man fled in his white 2001 Holden Astra hatchback, bearing Queensland registration plates “554GHQ”, while the other man fled in the blue Holden Commodore.
The 83-year-old was not injured during the armed-robbery.
The armed man was described as Caucasian in appearance, average build and was wearing a high-visibility shirt at the time of the offence.
