Toy gun used in robbery

A man who allegedly claimed he was armed when he demanded cash from a woman at an ATM was found in a car with alleged drugs and toy guns last night.

Police have charged the 27-year-old Calingiri man with attempted armed robbery after he was allegedly driving a ute which had the same registration as a ute used by a man in an alleged attempted armed robbery yesterday morning.

A woman gave the registration details of the vehicle to police after she was approached by a man at an ATM in Rivervale at about 7.40am.

The man allegedly demanded cash before showing her a gun.

The woman cancelled her transaction and returned to her car, while the man went into a white Holden Commodore ute.

At 9.45pm, police on patrol stopped the same ute and took two men into custody.

During a search of the ute, officers allegedly found methylamphetamine, cannabis and two toy guns.

The 27-year-old passenger was released without charge.

The charged man was refused bail and will appear in Joondalup Magistrate’s Court today.

Police are continuing their investigations into the alleged drugs.
