Police have released CCTV images of two thieves believed responsible for separate robberies at a suburban pharmacy and liquor store in recent weeks.
Regional Investigations Unit detectives are looking for a man who covered his face with a plastic bag before threatening staff at a Wembley pharmacy on November 4.
Police said the man approached the locked front door of the chemist with the bag over his face, claiming he had a blood nose. A staff member let the man inside, who demanded the safe be opened.
The staff member, fearing for the safety of two customers and herself, complied with the man’s demands and he left with medication and cash.
He was last seen riding away on a dark motorcycle and is described as being in his mid 20s, fair skinned, between 185 and 190cm tall and of slim build.
The man was wearing a long dark rain jacket, dark pants and dark sunglasses.
Police have also released two CCTV photos believed to be of a man who used a gun to threaten and rob staff at a liquor store in Kingsley last month.A staff member closing a liquor store about 6.50pm on October 22 noticed a man standing outside the shop acting suspiciously.
Police said the man then covered his face with a balaclava and entered the store, before partially opening his jacket to reveal the handle of a firearm and demanding cash.
The offender is described as fair skinned, about 173cm tall, of solid build, with blue eyes and brown facial hair that was greying.
At the time of the offence he was wearing a dark jacket with a high visibility vest over the top, a black balaclava that may also have been worn as a beanie, dark pants and black/white sneakers.
Anyone with information regarding either robbery, or who recognises the men pictured in the CCTV images is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
