Second man charged over Goodna robbery

A SECOND man has been charged over the armed robbery of Falvey's Cecil Hotel in Goodna.

Two men, one of them armed with a firearm, confronted an employee at the hotel on March 19 this year, gaining access to the hotel before stealing cash.

Well-known Ipswich sports identity Anthony "Chook" Fowler was charged in relation to the robbery last week.

On-going investigations led police to a second accused - a 37-year-old Goodna man - on Monday.

The man has been charged with armed robbery, serious assault and deprivation of liberty.

He will appear before Brisbane Magistrates Court on August 5.
