FIRST with ROSS & JOHN

Police are reviewing CCTV after two would be thieves escaped from Westmeadows Tavern before officers arrived.

Authorities were called to the Ardlie Street pub at about 5am, following reports of two men armed with firearms inside.

Soon after police arrived, a woman ran from the tavern and told officers she had been held against her will inside.

3AW reporter on the scene, Pat Mitchell, said about 20 police stormed the premises just after 10am.

“They’ve decided to go in with guns drawn, but no sign yet of anyone coming out,” he told Neil Mitchell.

There was nobody inside.
