Detectives are questioning two people after an alleged hold-up at a service station in Inverell on Tuesday morning.
About 3.40am, two male offenders entered a 24-hour service station on Warialda Rd.

"They left the store with an amount of cigarettes and cash on foot," he said.
"Within 20 minutes police had made a number of arrests and those persons are currently at Inverell Police Station where they are assisting police with inquiries."
