Caught on cam­eras

Central Leader - - News -

A man who tried to rob five petrol sta­tions in one night is be­ing sought by po­lice.

The in­ci­dents hap­pened within 45 min­utes in the early hours of Fe­bru­ary 20 at cen­tral sub­urb sta­tions, from One­hunga to New Lynn.

The of­fender threat­ened sta­tion staff with vi­o­lence and in two cases at­ten­dants told po­lice a con­cealed ob­ject re­sem­bling a pis­tol was used.

He was caught on se­cu­rity cam­eras and is de­scribed as a Maori or Pa­cific Is­lan­der with black hair and a solid build.

He was aged be­tween late teens and mid-20s and may have a black tat­too on the in­side of his right fore­arm.

The of­fender was wear­ing a white truck­er­style hat with a white New York Yan­kees logo, a navy blue t-shirt with a stripe logo across the chest and a large green and blue logo on the back, baggy black three­quar­ter pants and white train­ers with black de­tail.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can con­tact de­tec­tive con­sta­ble Scott Jones at the Avon­dale po­lice sta­tion on 820-5786.

All in­for­ma­tion will be dealt with in con­fi­dence.
