Police Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton says youth gangs are moving away from committing home invasions to robbing service stations for cigarettes.

After a wave of brazen home invasions and carjackings in recent months, Mr Ashton told Neil Mitchell a new trend had emerged where the same offenders were picking ‘soft targets’.

‘We are seeing more robberies and supermarkets and 7/11 service stations,’ he said.

‘They are currently what we are seeing.

‘They are targets that are often open all night.’
