Another Launceston aggravated robbery


Police in the state's north are hoping they've put a dent in Launceston crime, after seizing illegal firearms and charging two men over an aggravated armed robbery.

Authorities were called to an address on Eddington Crescent in Invermay at around 7pm on Sunday night where two men, armed with a gun, had allegedly threatened and assaulted a 50-year-old man.

After striking a blow to his head, they escaped with a chainsaw, $65 cash, a rifle and some ammunition.

It's been confirmed one of the men was known to the victim. 

36-year-old Carl Maxwell Hall from Mayfield is behind bars and will front the Supreme Court on September 2.

Police executed a search warrant at a property on Killafaddy Road in St Leonards yesterday, seizing three firearms, ammunition, a large amount of cannabis and cash.

The 34-year-old occupant has fronted court today on a string of charges, including in relation to the aggravated armed robbery on Sunday night.

Daniel Delphine was refused bail and will join Mr Maxwell for trial in September.
