A thug with a thirst for flavoured milk has been captured on camera pointing a sawn off shot gun at a service station attendant in Tooradin on Tuesday 12 February.
Police say the man in his thirties entered service station on South Gippsland Highway about 3.15am.
Once inside the premises he went to the fridge, selected flavoured milk and went to the front counter.
He then asked the attendant for a packet of cigarettes.
It’s alleged the man produced a sawn off shotgun and threatened the attendant.
The attendant was forced to hand over cash and cigarettes before the man fled the store.
The offender is perceived to be Caucasian, with a slim build and wearing a ‘Furphy’ beanie, black zip hoodie, a black t-shirt with NXP on the front and jeans.
Detectives from Casey Crime Investigation Unit have released an image and CCTV of a man they believe may be able to assist with their inquiries.
Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers Victoria on 1800 333 000.
