FOURTH MAN CHARGED OVER ARMED ROBBERY

Police have charged a fourth man over an armed robbery at a Hunter Valley club late last year.

Shortly before 5am on December 22, three men allegedly forced entry into the club at Greta, armed with a firearm, a baseball bat and a sword.

They allegedly attacked an employee and took off with a number of items in a getaway car.

This morning, a 26-year-old man was conveyed from Cessnock jail to Newcastle police station and charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon.

He was refused bail.
