Woman charged over sledgehammer supermarket robbery

A woman has been charged over the brazen early morning robbery of a supermarket in Reedy Creek, with two others still on the run.

The trio allegedly used a sledgehammer to smash their way into a Woolworths store on Kingsmore Boulevard around 3am on Wednesday.

A Queensland Police spokesperson told myGC they managed to take cigarettes and mobile phones before making their escape in a car.


A 31-year-old woman from Labrador has since been arrested and charged with a string of offences including enter premises to commit an indictable offence by breaking and unlawful use of a motor vehicle.

She has also been charged with stealing and receiving tainted property, and is due to appear in Southport Magistrates Court on November 3.

Police said investigations into the smash-and-grab are continuing, with two other women still at large.
