A fourth man has been charged following an investigation into an armed robbery that occurred late last year in the Hunter Valley.
Three men allegedly forced entry into a licence club in Greta, near Maitland, just before 5am on December 22.
The club was closed at the time the trio, allegedly armed with a firearm, a baseball bat and a sword, approached an employee, who was the only staff member present.
They allegedly attacked the employee before collecting several items and leaving in a car driven by a fourth man.
Strike Force Timbrell was established by State Crime Command's Robbery and Serious Crime squad to investigate the incident.
About 9.15am on Wednesday, a 26-year-old man was taken from a correctional facility at Cessnock to Newcastle Police Station.
He was charged with robbery whilst armed with a dangerous weapon.
