A service station east of Ipswich was ram-raided by three balaclava-clad thieves early Thursday for the second time in less than a week.

Police say a ute reversed through the glass doors of the Goodna service station about 2am Thursday and three people then robbed the store.

A back room was broken into and property stolen and drinks were then taken from the shop area.

One of the offenders then poured kerosene over shop stock before the trio fled.

They were last seen driving in the ute along Brisbane Terrace.

All three were dressed in black and had their faces obscured.

It comes after four similarly dressed offenders ram raided the same service station in the early hours of Monday.

At about 3.15am a stolen hatchback reversed into the store, smashing the windows, before four people entered, climbed over the counter and used bolt cutters to smash their way into a cupboard in the office.

Money, cigarettes, food and drink was taken before the four fled in the stolen vehicle.

The quartet is also believed to be behind a ram raid earlier Monday morning at a convenience store in Cunungra, in the Gold Coast Hinterland.

At about 1.15am the same stolen white hatchback reversed into the convenience store, smashing the windows and four black-clad offenders entered the store, ripped off cabinet doors off and fled with cigarettes, snack food and drinks.

Police are investigating if the Monday and Friday incidents are related.
