Gold Coast’s alleged ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ bank robbers charged

Police have caught up with the Gold Coast’s own ‘Bonnie and Clyde’, arresting two people in relation to an armed bank robbery in Burleigh last week.

A man and woman allegedly stormed the Suncorp bank at Stocklands Burleigh around 3.00pm on Thursday September 26 armed with a gun, before demanding money from the attendant.

The attendant complied before the pair allegedly fled the scene on a motorbike.


It’s understood members of the public attempted to chase the pair, though were unable to stop them.

Members of the public then spotted the duo on the bike on Dunlin Drive and Christine Avenue, where they were reportedly pushing the bike.

Police caught up with the alleged armed robbers on Elizabeth Avenue in Broadbeach yesterday morning, and took the pair into custody.

A 30-year-old Southport man has been charged with one count each of armed robbery, possessing dangerous drugs (metheylamphetamine) and possessing utensils or pipes that have been used.

A 22-year-old woman – also from Southport – has been charged with one count of armed robbery.

They’re both due to face Southport court today (September 30).
