A MAN banned from entering licensed premises is accused of stealing alcohol on three separate occasions in less than three hours.

Police arrested the 41-year-old Innaloo man on December 30 after staff at Cellarbrations and BWS in Innaloo reported stealing offences.

According to Scarborough Police, the man tried to leave the Cellarbrations store without paying for a six-pack of Jim Beam and cola cans on December 30 at 5.45pm.

He will face court on January 21 charged with robbery, armed robbery, stealing and entering a premises contrary to a barring notice.
