Do you recognise this? Distinctive Greenpeace bag used in West Auckland aggravated robbery


Waitakere Police investigating the aggravated robbery of a New Lynn dairy want to hear from anyone who may recognise this distinctive satchel.


At around 2.15pm on Wednesday 12 February a man entered the Sheridan Dairy at the intersection of Sheridan Drive and Gilliam Street, he had his face covered and was armed with a hammer.

The offender approached the counter, threatened the shop keeper and demanded cigarettes.

The robber was carrying a distinctive black satchel. Both the bag and the hammer were found a short time later between Grandison Crescent & Pokapu Street.

"The bag is quite unusual and we're hoping someone may recognise it. It's got a picture of the Greenpeace yacht on the outer flap and inside the bag is a Salvation Army label" says Detective Jackson Shewry, Waitakere CIB.

"The offender may be a local, he fled on foot down Gilliam Street and our enquiries to date lead us to believe he lives in the general area."

The offender is described as a Maori or Pacific Islander, aged between 16-20 years old, with a small to medium build.

He wore a black hooded nylon jacket with a silver trim.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Shewry on 09 839 0628.

Information can also be provided anonymously to the organisation Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Trump did so only hours after a moderate was re-elected in a landslide in Iran’s elections, a victory that opened up a potential for dialogue that the US has chosen to spurn instead, utterly. More>>
