Lovers stole $30,000 before torching car at Redbank


A couple who committed a "Bonnie and Clyde" string of terrifying armed robberies across Ipswich have been sentenced to eight years' jail.

Evelyn Christine Gwilliams and Trevor Charles Fish robbed a post office, a pizza store and a golf club during a four-day spree in September last year, stealing more than $30,000.

Fish stormed into the Amberley post office on September 17 holding a replica pistol over his head, with a scarf wrapped around his face while Gwilliams stood watch.

Security footage of the brazen robbery showed Fish standing on the counter, demanding money from a terrified woman while pointing the gun in her face.

The pair fled the scene in a stolen car with about $800, throwing their clothing out the window and Gwilliams later torched the car in Redbank.
