    Man robs servo to avoid girl

    A 33-YEAR-OLD man who robbed a service station so that he would be returned to jail and not have to see his former girlfriend has been sentenced to two years prison.


    Craig Douglas Allen pleaded guilty to a count of armed robbery committed at a Bridgewater service station in June, 2010.

    Justice David Porter said that Allen had been armed with a butcher's knife when he demanded that a 22 -year -old male attendant hand over money.

    He obtained $450 in notes and ran off but was caught soon after walking along the road.

    "You admitted being involved in the robbery and said that you wanted to do it so that you could go back to jail," he said. "When interviewed you confirmed that it was your intention to get yourself into trouble and to go to jail as you had broken up with your girlfriend and that this would prevent you from seeing or contacting her."


    Justice Porter said the man had an extensive record including a previous robbery of a service station with a sawn-off shotgun in 2006.

    "This is a rather unusual case. It is clear from the facts that you quickly returned to the scene in order to be apprehended," he said. "Regrettably you saw committing the crime as a way of avoiding the immediate issue following the relationship breakdown."

    He ordered that Allen not be eligible for parole until he had served 15 months in prison.
