Investigators from the Sunshine Coast Property Crime Task Force have charged two people following an armed robbery at Maroochydore on Sunday, August 11.

A 17-year-old boy was charged with one count each of armed robbery, unauthorised use of a motor vehicle, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, unlicensed driving, evading police, possession of a dangerous drug and other drug related offences, as well as three counts of stealing.

An 18-year-old woman was charged with one count each of robbery, unauthorised use of a motor vehicle and evading police. She was also charged with two counts of stealing.

Another 13-year-old girl is in custody and is assisting police as they conduct further investigations.

The group allegedly flagged down a delivery driver on Primary School Court before producing a knife and demanding that the driver exit the vehicle. They then left the scene in the stolen vehicle.

The vehicle allegedly failed to stop when police attempted to intercept it on Nambour Road before it was found abandoned on Maroubra Street later that night.

The 18-year-old woman was released on conditional bail and is scheduled to appear in Maroochydore Magistrates Court on September 2.

Police are seeking public assistance to identify three people involved in an armed robbery at Maroochydore last night, August 11.

A delivery driver was looking for an address at Primary School Court when he was flagged down by a man and two women just after 8:30pm.

The man then produced a knife and demanded that the 19-year-old man exit the vehicle. The group then left the scene in the stolen vehicle.

The driver was not physically injured.

A short time later, the vehicle failed to stop when police attempted to intercept it on Nambour Road. The vehicle was found abandoned on Maroubra Street just before 10:30pm.

The man is described as a 19-20-year-old wearing short Adidas pants, dark long-sleeved shirt and a dark bucket cap. No descriptions are available of the accompanying women.
