Sydney: gang feared behind armoured van raids

Jan 22, 2008. ABC News:

Police say a highly organised gang may be behind a series of armed robberies on armoured vans in Sydney.

The latest robbery happened at a petrol station at Granville, in western Sydney, about 6:20am (AEDT) today.

Police say three armed men, all wearing balaclavas, threatened four armoured guards and stole cash before fleeing the scene in a silver sedan.

No-one was hurt in the incident, the third armed hold-up of an armoured vehicle in just over a week.

Two similar robberies took place at Lidcombe and Bankstown last week.

Detective Greg Antonjuk says eight guns have been stolen off guards in those three robberies ...
