Disguised offenders steal
Three armed and ‘‘heavily disguised’’ offenders have robbed a security van in South Auckland.
The incident happened just after 11am last Wednesday, March 7, at the Takanini Southgate shopping complex.
Detective Sergeant Rob Hunkin of Counties Manukau Police said three heavily disguised offenders carrying a firearm approached the security guards who were transporting cash back to the security van.
‘‘The offenders presented a firearm at the security guards and fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash.
‘‘Thankfully the security guards were not injured during the robbery,’’ Hunkin said.
The offenders then fled the scene in an older style silver Subaru Legacy sedan car, which has since been recovered by police in the Bruce Pulman Park area.
Police were making area inquires, reviewing CCTV footage and speaking to witnesses.
‘‘We would like to hear from anyone else who may have witnessed the robbery.’’
