North Shore: Armed Robbery of Security Van

North Shore Waitekere Rodney

Location of incident: Albany South

Incident Type: Armed Robbery of Security Van

North Shore Police are at the scene of an armed robbery at the National Bank in William Pickering Drive, Albany South where a sum of money was taken at gun-point from security guards refilling an ATM machine.

As one guard entered the premises a man described as a male Maori of medium build, aged about 30 years and wearing dark clothing, approached the second guard and pointing a sawn-off shotgun at him, forced him into the bank.

The guards were made to open a cash box and then to lie on the ground as the offender made off with an undisclosed amount of cash. A second offender was heard but not seen.

No vehicle was seen or heard leaving the scene and police are appealing for members of the public who may have seen two or more men leaving the area of the bank just before 8.00am to contact police with the information. Detective Sergeant Steve Pivac of the North Shore Policing Centre also asks people working or residing in the area to keep a lookout for any suspicious vehicles that may have been abandoned in the vicinity of the bank.
