Robbery at Rydalmere service station

Two men are facing court after an overnight robbery at a Rydalmere service station at the weekend.

About 9.30pm Sunday, two males entered the Victoria Road business.

The console operator has given them cash and cigarettes.

Police patrolling an industrial area on Briens Road at Northmead spotted a car, matching the description of the Falcon, in an underground car park.

Two men, aged 21 and 18, were arrested without incident. Police located cartons of cigarettes and a loaded firearm in a nearby room.

Both were taken to Parramatta Police Station and charged with robbery whilst armed and refused bail. They will appear in Parramatta Local Court later today
