Bicycle Bandits Ransack Westfield Jewellers

Two stores were robbed

Police are searching for two men who smashed their way into Westfield Kotara with hammers in an early morning heist.

The masked bandits broke into the centre at about 2:15am on Tuesday, stealing jewellery from two stores.

A police spokesman told KOFM it's not clear how much was taken but it appears watches and jewellery were taken from the shops. Staff are still adding up the cost of the burglary.

The pair then fled the scene on bicycles.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
