Two armed thieves terrorised a service station cashier for cash but ended up just stealing three bottles of vodka.

The terrifying ordeal occurred at around 8.15pm on Tuesday at the Q8 store in Oberpallen. Two masked people entered the service station, one brandishing a handgun and the other a small axe.

They threatened the cashier and attempted to steal the keys to the till. In their haste to leave, they failed to open the till and grabbed three bottles of vodka before retreating to a black VW Golf parked outside.

The car reportedly had Belgian number plates and fled towards Arlon.
