Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Po­lice have ar­rested three of­fend­ers, in­clud­ing a 14-year-old, af­ter a crime spree on the evening of June 14.

Two males and a fe­male were caught by po­lice in Avon­dale af­ter steal­ing a car and at­tempt­ing a num­ber of rob­beries.

The trio stole a cell­phone from a vic­tim in Pon­sonby and tried to take money from two men in Mt Al­bert.

The of­fend­ers then headed to New Lynn and stole a purse from a parked car, say po­lice.

They then at­tacked an­other car and its oc­cu­pant.

The three then drove off and their car was spot­ted by a Henderson po­lice car and a pur­suit started.

The ve­hi­cle was spiked three times by po­lice be­fore it fi­nally came to a stop in Avon­dale.

Avon­dale po­lice caught the al­leged of­fend­ers as they tried to es­cape and re­cov­ered the stolen cell­phone.

All three were jointly charged and have been re­manded on bail.

They will reap­pear in court on June 30.
