BANDITS were caught in the act at a service station in Hervey Bay in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Police are looking into CCTV footage after the two bandits allegedly smashed their way into the Caltex on Chapel Road at 4.10am.

Senior Constable Aaron Wigmore said two people attempted the break-in but jumped in a car and took off when the owners arrived.
