Bomaderry man charged over armed hold up

A BOMADERRY man, who allegedly held up a Bomaderry service station with a pistol, pleaded guilty to procuring a child under 14 for unlawful sexual activity.

Aiden Rhys Carter, 19, of the Princes Highway pleaded guilty to the procuring charge, when he appeared before Magistrate Alison Viney in Nowra Local Court on Tuesday.

He did not enter a plea on the charge of robbery while armed with a dangerous weapon.

Carter was charged over the robbery of the Woolworths Caltex Service Station on October 26 last year.

Shoalhaven detectives attached to Strike Force Ganora, established to investigate the robbery, arrested Mr Carter and charged him with robbery while armed with a dangerous weapon, a pistol.

The court heard Carter allegedly entered the service station, demanding money before robbing the console operator of $300 cash while being armed with a pistol.

Magistrate Viney continued conditional bail and Carter will reappear in Nowra Local Court on July 22.
