A JACKASS Flat man has faced court on charges of allegedly using a sawn off rifle to hold up a truck stop at Eaglehawk.
The 28-year-old, Dylan Dunn-Carney, is accused of using the single barrel firearm to rob the BP service station on Peg Leg Road, on October 7 last year.
Police have alleged that the armed robbery netted the man $300 from the store.
The charges allege Mr Dunn-Carney was considered a "prohibited person" in relation to the firearm at the time of the incident.
There were multiple alleged offences under consideration by the court, covering separate incidents over a time period of nearly two years.
Documents held by the Magistrates Court show that Mr Dunn-Carney is facing charges which allege he discharged a firearm projectile during the 2021 robbery.
He is accused of reckless conduct that placed one or more people in danger of losing their lives during the commission of the robbery.
He is also charged with an additional count of using a firearm in a dangerous manner.

Prosecutor Emma Fargher said she expected some extra documentation to be made available to the court in the near future.
The resources would include a ballistics report, she said.
Mr Dunn-Carney also faces other, older charges from 2019.
He has been accused of driving a vehicle on Christmas Day, 2019, in contravention of court orders.
He faced charges of driving the vehicle along McIvor Highway, Junortoun at a time when he was disqualified from holding a licence.
Police have alleged that he steered the vehicle across the road, over to the right hand side of double dividing lines on the highway.
Mr Dunn-Carney was told that his case would return to court on March 2 for further consideration.
