A man has been charged following an armed robbery that occurred on Thursday, September 6 at Insignia Hair and Day Spa on York Road in Jamisontown.
At the time of the offence, staff were threatened by a male wearing a motorcycle helmet demanding cash before he fled the scene.
After extensive investigations detectives from the Nepean Police Area Command located the 35-year-old offender on Thursday, October 11 at Parker Street in Kingswood.
He was arrested and charged with the robbery of Insignia Hair and Day Spa, ‘aggravated break and enter’ and ‘supply prohibited drugs’, all from the same date.
Police believe this crime is linked to the recent armed hold-up at ABCOE on the same street, although charges for this crime are yet to be laid.
The same offender was also charged with another break and enter that occurred in Cranebrook on Thursday, October 4.
Passports were stolen and those goods remain in custody.
He was refused bail to appear at Penrith Local Court on Wednesday, December 12.
