• The following joint statement was issued by PLP MPs Neville Tyrell and Dennis Lister on Friday, February 8, 2019

As the Esso Tigermart in Warwick sits on the boundaries of our constituencies, we would like to condemn the individuals involved in the armed robbery on Thursday, February 7.  Violent acts of this manner have no place in our society, and we must ensure that the perpetrators are brought to justice.  The workers and patrons, of which some were students, are traumatized by this event, and we cannot allow this to become the norm.

As the Members of Parliament for Warwick South Central and Warwick West, we are concerned about the negative social impact on our constituents, who patronize this gas station and live in the surrounding areas.  We call on all persons to be vigilant of their surroundings. If anyone has seen anything that can assist the BPS in this investigation, please make contact with them soonest.

Our thoughts are with those that this incident impacted directly and we hope that once justice has prevailed, that they can continue to work in our community with peace of mind and security.

MP Neville Tyrell and MP Dennis Lister III
