A jury at a County Court sitting in Ballarat on Thursday heard evidence against Brett Cummins in the trial of his co-accused Ian Gilbee, 52, who has been accused of stealing a car used during the robbery in February 2013.

Gilbee’s armed robbery charge read that he stole cash and cigarettes from the Black Hill Post Office and at the time knew co-offender Cummins was carrying a firearm.

Crown prosecutor Andrew Moore called on two witnesses employee Emily Dansey and postmaster Troy Cheeseman to detail what happened inside the store after a jury was empanelled on Thursday morning.

The jury heard Ms Dansey was behind the counter at the Black Hill Post Office when a man wearing a mask walked in, shouted profanities and pointed a gun in her face before placing a plastic bag on the counter and saying “fill her up”.

Ms Dansey said a woman, whose child was bawling during the robbery, pleaded with her to give him the money as she furiously packed the bags with cash from the till.

The jury heard Ms Dansey saw a man enter a getaway car parked close to the post office after leaving the store, which was driven away by an unidentified person.

Mr Cheeseman told the jury he was out the back of the post office rebooting computers that had crashed because of the hot weather when he heard “yelling and screaming”.

“As soon as I came in (to the store) there was a shotgun pointed in my face,” said Mr Cheeseman, who detailed customers cowering in the corner of the store.

Mr Cheeseman said the man, wearing a “gorilla mask”, enquired about a safe in the post office but, after being told it was time-locked, asked for a pack of cigarettes.

“I was just happy to get the man out,” he said.

The jury was shown CCTV footage from inside the store during the robbery, which showed a man pointing a gun at two people stuffing money into plastic bags metres away from a group of customers squashed in the corner of the store.

The trial before judge David Parsons was adjourned until November 10.
