Strike Force Shirley was established by detectives from the Robbery and Serious Crime Squad, and Port Stephens and Central Hunter Local Area Commands, to investigate a series of armed robberies in the area.

Following extensive investigations, a search warrant was executed at a home on Shearman Avenue, Raymond Terrace, about 9.30am yesterday (Tuesday 4 April 2017).
