Thieves steal cash and chocolate at Castlemaine service station

Sweet-toothed thieves made off with cash and some sugary delights after breaking into a Castlemaine petrol station in the early hours of Tuesday morning. 

Three people, all donned in hooded tops, attended the Johnstone Street premises shortly before 2am, when two of the offenders, believed to be males, got out of the car and smashed their way through the locked front doors.  

Once inside, they stole an amount of cash, cigarette lighters and chocolates, before fleeing in the waiting car, described as a dark Holden Commodore.

Police have released CCTV footage of two men who they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at, or Central Goldfields Crime Investigation Unit on 5460 3333.
