Apere­hama Brian Buick ap­peared in Palmer­ston North District Court yes­ter­day, charged with the rob­bery. Po­lice were called to Ocean Pantry Take­aways in Kelvin Grove, Palmer­ston North, about 7.20pm on Thurs­day and were told a man armed with a ri­fle had robbed it, a po­lice spokes­woman said.
