THE hammer-wielding duo who robbed a Mount Gambier service station late last year appeared in court yesterday for sentencing submissions.
Brett Andrew Jusup, 26 and Frederick Ronald Fenton, 28, appeared in the Mount Gambier District Court after pleading guilty to a charge of committing theft using force for robbing a Penola Road service station on November 8 last year.
The court heard how the robbers debated over covering their faces with bandannas before grabbing a hammer each from the boot of their car.
They entered the service station at around 1.20am where Fenton went behind the counter and threatened the service station attendant with a hammer.
Jusup grabbed cigarettes from a counter before both men fled with $345 cash
