Court splits pair accused of violent Harlaxton robbery

COURT proceedings against two of three men charged with what police claim was a violent robbery in Harlaxton and a subsequent police chase across Toowoomba and down to the Lockyer Valley have been adjourned to separate courts.

Lance Andrew Hill, 25, and Ian Laurence Twaddle, 28, have been remanded in custody since their arrest for the December 9 incidents and were not in Toowoomba Magistrates Court for the mentions of their respective matters yesterday.

Twaddle is charged with 10 matters including robbery with actual violence in company, unlawful use of motor vehicle, obstructing police, and entering a dwelling to commit an offence; while Hill is similarly charged but also has additional matters of attempted robbery with violence, serious assault, dangerous driving and acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm.

Police claim as a stolen car was being driven away from the Harlaxton incident it was driven directly at a police officer responding to the report of the robbery.

Hill was arrested after the stolen car he was allegedly driving crashed into a bus near Hatton Vale, the impact so serious the vehicle was cut in two.

He allegedly ran off but was soon caught by police.

Because Hill had charges arising from those incidents in the Lockyer Valley, Magistrate Bruce Schemioneck adjourned his charges to the Ipswich Magistrates Court for mention on February 17.

Mr Schemioneck adjourned Twaddle's matters back to the Toowoomba Magistrates for committal mention on April 14.

There being no application for bail, both men were remanded in custody.

A third accused, Keith William Murray, 38, has been remanded in custody to appear in Toowoomba Magistrates Court on February 9.
