A Strike Force was established to investigate a series of armed robbery offences committed around the Little Bay area. The offences committed related to a single male offender armed with a knife. As part of a media release to assist in the identification of the offender, CCTV footage images were posted on the NSW Police Facebook page. As a result, a number of Crime Stoppers Intelligence Reports were received nominating the POI. On 24 November 2015, police arrested the POI at his residence. He participated in a recorded interview where he made partial admissions. The matter is still before the courts.
