Thieves target CBD bottle shop twice in one night

LIQUORLAND on Wood St was targeted by a group of thieves on Saturday night, who returned to steal from the bottle shop not once, but twice within five minutes.

The incident occurred about 8pm when three men wearing hooded jackets entered the store and stole a large bottle of Jack Daniels.

The attendant became aware of the incident and confronted the men, who denied stealing from the shop.

The men left on foot and began threatening the attendant from afar, he then called the police.

Only five minutes later before police arrived, two of the men returned to the store, despite the attendant warning them not to enter, and stole a 1L bottle of Johnny Walker Red Label before again fleeing on foot.

Police attended the incident, which was captured on CCTV, and are amid investigations.
