Person of Interest Identified for Aggravated Robberies

Person of Interest Identified for Aggravated Robberies

Counties Manukau Police investigating the aggravated robbery of the Mobil service station at Mt Wellington on the 23rd of April 2014 are investigating the possibility that it is linked with another robbery at the Mobil station on Apirana Ave, Glen Innes on Friday 18 April and another recent incident which occurred at the Caltex service station in Penrose yesterday morning. The first incident occurred at 1:30am on Good Friday, when two offenders, one with a firearm, smashed their way through the door of the Mobil station on Apirana Ave, Glen Innes. Cash was targeted and the offenders left within two minutes of arriving.

The second incident was on Wednesday 23 April, at 1:25am, where two offenders smashed through the glass of the door of the Mobil station on Mt Wellington Highway. The offenders discharged a firearm at a door and window and left the premises with cash and cigarettes in a stolen Nissan.

The most recent incident occurred at about 1:00am yesterday morning (Thursday 24 April) when three offenders entered the Caltex station in Penrose. One offender confronted the lone store attendant with the firearm and assaulted him with it. The two other offenders took shop items and cash before fleeing the premises in a brown mini van.

Police are currently investigating the similarities between these incidents. Police believe 17 year old Breyarn Hose can assist with enquiries or information in regards to these recent aggravated robberies and wish to speak to him as soon as possible.

Breyarn is believed to be in the Auckland area with associates but has no fixed abode. He has warrants to arrest issued by Dargaville District Court. Anyone with information on Breyarn's whereabouts or any of the three aggravated robberies should contact Counties Manukau Police Crime Squad on 09 261 1321. To provide information anonymously contact the organisation Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Issue 49: Werewolf Weekender

Philip Matthews: From The Lost Continent
It’s a case of better late than never for Olivier Assayas’ marvellous After May/Apres Mai, which first screened at Venice in 2012, had a couple of North Island screenings last year during the International Film Festival’s “Autumn Events” season, got a theatrical release in Australia – but not here – and only now appears on DVD, after Assayas himself has moved on.

The Complicatist: Blue Eyed & Soulful
For a while in June, the top two singles on the US Billboard charts featured Iggy Azalea, an Australian model turned hip hop performer. To some, this may seem like just the latest chapter in a long saga of whites ripping off black culture, while enriching themselves in the process. Obviously, there’s some truth in the stereotype. Yet it can also obscure the positive collaborations – in jazz, soul music and hip hop – between musicians who treated each other as creative equals, race regardless. More>>

Satire: Carry On Captaining
Oh hello. Scanner Technician Davis. To what do I owe the pleasure?
You think we’re what?
Oh, pish. This vessel has been travelling along smoothly for generations – particularly smoothly in the last few years though I say so myself – and I happen to know we have never once been hit by an asteroid... More>>
