Woman allegedly commits armed robbery at open home

A 27 year old woman allegedly robbed a real estate agent at an open house in Surfers Paradise this weekend.

According to The Courier Mail, police allege Amy Lee Niwa, 27, of Carrara, attended an open home and pretended to be a buyer. After the real estate agent turned away to note her details, Niwa allegedly pulled out a handgun, making demands for his car keys and phone.

After taking the agent’s keys, the unlicensed driver allegedly went on a shopping spree. A police prosecutor reportedly said Niwa can be seen on CCTV footage from various stores driving into carparks in the stolen car and making purchases using a stolen credit card.

She allegedly spent almost $1000 over that afternoon at Billabong and Hot Brands stores, a bottleshop and a supermarket. Niwa was arrested two days later, after being reported by a member of the public.

The Courier Mail reports that Niwa allegedly admitted to being armed with a 20 centimetre kitchen knife in a jacket sleeve, with a syringe and some methamphetamine, with the gun not yet found.

She is accused of committing 21 offences and was refused bail. She was reportedly remanded in custody and will return to court in August.
