Police hunt hungry pie thief

Who ate all the pies? That's the question police are asking after a well dressed, hungry thief robbed the same Gold Coast service station three times yesterday morning.

The thief, dressed in a black suit, made off with a solitary pie around 2.30am (AEST) in his first visit to the Pacific Pines service station before returning with a bottle of wine which he used in a threatening manner while demanding cigarettes.

Soon after, the man, described as Caucasian and aged in his early-20s, returned for a third time with the wine bottle, which had been smashed.

Brandishing the broken bottle he demanded several more pies, cash and cigarettes.

The attendant handed over several pies but refused to give the man any cash and he ran off.

Police are asking anyone with information on the thief to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
