A 25-year-old man has been arrested over the border, in relation to a string of armed robberies on the Gold Coast.
Police believe armed hold-ups at stores in Palm Beach, Tallai, Burleigh Heads and Tugun, between September 13 and 18, are all related, with three men wanted for questioning.
In each case, a man threatened workers with a tire-iron before taking off with cash.
A Terranora man was arrested in New South Wales yesterday and is currently in custody on bail breach offences.
It was expected he would be extradited to Queensland at a later date to face further charges.
Police were still looking for another two men, believed to have been involved in the crimes.
They might be travelling in a 2012 Toyota Camry with NSW registration CJ56YC.
