The store owner and one staff member were in the shop at the time, but there were no customers.

There were no injuries, Coleman said.

Police were still searching for the man who was dressed in black and wearing a balaclava.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
