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.
