A man walked into the main entrance of the Tarcutta Street motel at 9.25pm last night and reached over the reception desk, grabbed some cash and ran away.

The owner of the motel chased the man, who was seen getting into a light-coloured Ford Falcon sedan bearing registration plates reading WPY431.

He was described as having light-coloured hair, between 170cm and 180cm tall, clean-shaven, chubby build and might have been missing a front tooth. At the time of the theft, the offender was wearing light blue jeans and red shirt.

This morning, a man entered a North Wagga cafe and demanded money from a staff member before he reached over the counter and snatched cash from the till.

A scuffle between thecafe worker and the offender ensued before the thief made off with a small amount of cash.

Again, the thief jumped into the Ford Falcon with registration plates reading WPY431. This time, the robber was described as being 5’10” and of a solid build, wearing a black cover over his face, a dark flannelette jacket and dark tracksuit pants.

Police are urging local businesses to take extra precautions and keep minimal amounts of money in their cash registers, while also asking members of the public with any information related to these two incidentsto contact the station on 6922 2599 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
