Man extradited for Coast hammer jewellery theft

A MAN has been extradited from South Australia to face charges over a brutal 2015 armed robbery that has already seen one man jailed.

On March 26, 2015, a man entered Nambour Jewellers in Nambour allegedly armed with a hammer.

Staff saw him coming and hid in a storeroom at the back of the store.

Four display cases and a mannequin bust were stolen, valued at about $20,000 for wholesale and about $60,000 for retail.
