Four people have been charged over their alleged roles in planning an armed robbery at Warwick Farm last year. About 5am on July 5 last year, two men armed with a knife and an electronic stun device entered a Hume Highway pub at Warwick Farm and threatened two staff. They stole cash and fled in a car which had been waiting on Liverpool Street. No one was injured.

Robbery & Serious Crime Squad detectives established Strike Force Amor to investigate the armed robbery. They arrested two women, 21 and 49, and a man, 26, at Liverpool police station last Wednesday.

The man was charged with armed robbery, directing a criminal group and secretly dealing with the proceeds of crime (x 3). He was refused bail to be in Liverpool court last Thursday, when he was formally refused bail to be back in that court on October 28. The younger woman was charged with secretly dealing with the proceeds of crime (x 8) and being an accessory after the fact of armed robbery in company.

The older woman was charged with recklessly dealing with the proceeds of crime (x 3). Both were given conditional bail to be in Liverpool court on September 25. A fourth person, a man, 23, was also charged with armed robbery, dealing with the proceeds of crime and being in a criminal group.

He's due in Liverpool court on October 30. Investigations under Strike Force Amor are continuing and police are still seeking two men in relation to this armed robbery. Detectives have asked for the public's help as they continue to investigate another robbery at the same pub earlier this year. About 4am on March 22, two men entered the pub, threatened and punched a male staff member, stole cash and fled.
