Youths rob Wangi hardware store

WITNESSES have told police how they watched two boys, believed to be aged as young as 12, jump from a car and rob a Wangi hardware store of its cash register.

Police said a red Nissan Skyline pulled up outside the Watkins Road store about 5.30pm yesterday before two boys jumped out and ran inside.

Within moments they had left the business with the cash register, jumped back into the car and were driven off.

Lake Macquarie police are investigating.
