An alleged gun-wielding thief opted for hi-vis clothing as he committed two brazen robberies in Auckland. Police said they were looking for aman in an orange hi-vis top who pointed a gun at a shop owner in the suburb of Penrose on Sunday morning. The man was also suspected of holding up a currency exchange shop in Queen St in the CBD about 8am Monday. The two robberies were believed to be linked. Anyone who had seen someone wearing hi-vis clothing and behaving suspiciously in either of these areas, was asked to contact Auckland City Police Crime Squad on 09 302 6557.
