Tuesday 15 March 2022 4:36am –

Detectives from the Armed Crime Squad have released images of two men they are looking to identify as part of their investigation into an armed robbery at the Peppermill Inn in Kialla last December.

Police have been told the two armed men entered the gaming venue on the Goulburn Valley Highway about 11.55pm on Thursday, 9 December.

The men were both masked and armed with a knife.

A number of staff members and patrons were in the venue at the time, and the majority managed to flee the area.

However the men confronted a male staff member with the knife and made a demand for cash.

He subsequently handed over a quantity of cash and the men left the premises.

No one was physically injured during the incident.

It’s believed the men left the area in a blue coloured sedan and headed north from the venue.

Detectives from the Armed Crime Squad are investigating the incident and are today releasing a number of images of the two men in the hope someone can provide information about their identity.
