Further charges laid over supermarket break-ins across the Hunter region

Detectives have laid an additional four charges against a man as they continue to investigate aggravated break and enters at supermarkets across the Hunter region.
In April 2018, detectives from the Robbery and Serious Crime Squad established Strike Force Tilyard to investigate six aggravated break-ins at supermarkets in the Hunter region between March 2017 and April 2018.
During the course of the investigation, detectives have charged two men, aged 28 and 20. They remain before the courts.
Following further inquiries, detectives laid an additional three counts of aggravated break, enter and steal, and one count of aggravated break, enter and damage property against a 28-year-old man on Friday (25 January 2019).
Police will allege in court that the man was part of a group, armed with sledge hammers, block splitters and jemmy bars, who broke into supermarkets in Tanilba Bay, Fletcher and Kurri before stealing cash.
He was granted strict conditional bail and is due to appear at Raymond Terrace Local Court today (Tuesday 29 January 2019).
Investigations under Strike Force Tilyard are ongoing.
