Police investigate armed robbery at Maroochydore

Police are investigating after a man had his vehicle stolen at gunpoint in Maroochydore this morning.

Just after 5am a 57-year-old man was driving a grey 2017 Ford Mustang (similar to pictured) through the rear carpark of a shopping complex on Maroochy Boulevard when he was cut off by three people in a white Ford utility.

Two male passengers exited the ute, one of them producing a firearm and threatening the man, ordering him out of his vehicle.

The victim complied and the man entered the Mustang and drove away behind the ute onto Plaza Parade.

Police are urgently appealing for anyone who may have seen the Mustang with Queensland registration 673CX6 to not approach the vehicle, but immediately dial Triple Zero (000).
