Later that night, the car fled past police when officers attempted to intercept it on Nambour Connection Rd.

It was then found abandoned on Maroubra St just before 10.30pm.

A Queensland Police Service spokeswoman said investigators from the Sunshine Coast Property Crime Task Force yesterday charged a 17-year-old Buderim boy and an 18-year-old Maroochydore woman over the incident.

The 17-year-old boy was charged with one count each of armed robbery, unauthorised use of a motor vehicle, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, unlicensed driving, evading police, possession of a dangerous drug and other drug-related offences, as well as three counts of stealing.

The 18-year-old has been charged with one count each of armed robbery, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and evading police. She was also charged with two counts of stealing.

The 13-year-old girl is in custody and is assisting police as they conduct further investigations.

The 18-year-old woman was released on conditional bail and is due to appear in Maroochydore Magistrates Court on September 2.
