Guilty plea to Koonawarra store hold-up

An Illawarra man who helped a woman hold up a convenience store at gunpoint will be sentenced in October.

Allan Eric Watts pleaded guilty in Campbelltown District Court on Thursday to robbing the Welcome Mart convenience store at Koonawarra on October 20 last year.

The court heard Watts and Melissa Louise Johnson used a black pistol to demand cash.

The pair made off with $3000 cash, cigarettes and chocolate milk from the shop.

Judge Antony Townsden adjourned the matter so a sentencing options report could be prepared.
