Police are looking for at least two males and a stolen white Mercedes AMG sedan (NSW registration: CWK70W) that was used during a spate of robberies in Sydney’s Hills district.
About 2.20pm (Sunday 13 December 2015), two males broke into a home on Bridgeview Crescent, Bella Vista, and stole a laptop computer and personal documents. No one was at home at the time of incident although a neighbour witnessed the pair leaving in a white Mercedes AMG sedan.
Around 3.10pm, two males broke into a home on Chepstow Drive, Castle Hill. Once inside the home, they confronted a 16-year-old boy who was home alone, threatening him with a screw driver, before stealing his phone, a lap-top computer and a small amount of cash. The pair fled the scene in a white Mercedes AMG sedan.
