See How Thieves Robbed A Jewellery Store In Rambo Style Ram Raid. See Photos

A ram-raid gang has smashed their way into five businesses over two nights of violent burglaries in Melbourne’s south east. In the most dramatic raid, they drove a vehicle through a shopping centre to reach their target.

The ram raid began on Monday morning at a Pearcedale petrol station, before moving onto another service station in Somerville and a newsagency in Baxter. Using a Suzuki Swift and a small truck, the group targeted a jewellery store in Frankston where they stole $70,000 worth of gold and silver. Óther stolen items included a safe, scratchies, cigarettes and a cash donation tin. Detectives have described the offenders as being of Caucasian and African descent, after one member mistakenly revealed his face while stealing petrol in Narre Warren.
