Armed man breaks into Toowoomba home: resident

POLICE investigating a daylight break-in at a West St home are keeping quiet about the early morning incident.

Officers were called to two West St homes, across the street from each other in North Toowoomba, about 7.30am yesterday.

A neighbour said he had heard an armed man had broken into at least one of the properties.

But Toowoomba Criminal Investigation Branch officer-in-charge Paul McCusker yesterday refused to confirm what police believed had happened at the houses.

"As a result of that, police attempted to intercept a vehicle which failed to stop," Detective Senior Sergeant McCusker said.

He said the car was last seen on Holberton St.
