One ar­rest — more to come?

Po­lice have charged a Kaitaia teenager with last month’s armed rob­bery of the Okai­hau Liquor Store, but are still look­ing for two other peo­ple.

The 17-year-old ap­peared be­fore the Whanga¯rei Dis­trict Court on Wed­nes­day charged with ag­gra­vated rob­bery, while ef­forts to iden­tify two more of­fend­ers con­tin­ued.

Two men armed with a ri­fle and a ma­chete en­tered the store at about 8.15pm on Septem­ber 10, mak­ing off with al­co­hol, cig­a­rettes and cash. Their faces were cov­ered, but po­lice hoped some­one would recog­nise one of­fender’s back­pack or rolled-up baggy or­ange-brown trousers (as pic­tured).

Po­lice are also look­ing for the get­away driver.

Last week Con­sta­ble Dave Brothers thanked the pub­lic for their help in iden­ti­fy­ing one of the al­leged of­fend­ers, and urged any­one with in­for­ma­tion who had not yet been spo­ken to to call the Kaikohe po­lice sta­tion on (09) 405-2960, or Crimestop­pers, anony­mously, on 800 555-111.
