Armed Robbery Investigation Seeks Two
Title: Armed Robbery Investigation Seeks Two
Police investigating three armed robberies in
the city last Sunday want to locate 34 year-old John Koteka
[see pic], also recently using the name Paul Wilson, for
whom they have a warrant to arrest in relation to the second
of the three offences that occurred at the base of Mt Eden.
Koteka is a Pacific Islander of solid build and, although
currently transient, has Auckland connections in the city
He may be in the company of 31 year-old
Maori, Alex Tereora [see pic], for whom the Auckland High
Court issued a warrant to arrest after he failed to appear
on February 18 to face several charges including the use of
a firearm and assault with intent to rob.
Inspector Scott Beard says neither man should be approached
by members of the public as both are considered to be armed
"If anyone has information about either or
both these men, they should call 111 immediately or
Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
"It's nearly a
week since the brazen and frightening offences occurred in
the Domain and on Mt Eden and we're very keen to locate
these men in order to prevent repeat offences."

With this strictly nominal surplus in sight, the 1984-ish justification for eternal austerity will have a news talisman: namely, getting Crown debt down to 20% of GDP by 2020. More>>

Budget 2013 Comment: Plain Sailing, But It's No America's Cup Pattrick Smellie: Compared to the last four budgets, this year's reflects an economy moving out of recession and into calmer waters... Yet if the fastest annual growth rate we can expect over the next two years is 3 percent - with the Christchurch rebuild in full swing - then you'd have to say New Zealand's underlying low-growth problem is far from fixed.
