Counties Manukau

Counties Manukau Police have arrested two Manurewa men following a series of aggravated robberies in late 2013. 

On 25 and 26 November, the WK Wines and Spirits Store in central Auckland, the Manukau Liquor Centre and the Mahia Rd Liquor Centre were robbed.

The arrests of the two men, aged 29 and 25, came following an extensive investigation.  Both will appear in Manukau District Court today charged with the aggravated robberies of the three stores.

"Police received a large number of tips from the public which helped the investigation," says Detective Sergeant Dave Honiss of Counties Manukau CIB.  "It's great to see that we have the support from members of the public who want to keep their community safe.
