Three In Court On Aggravated Robbery Charges

Three In Court On Aggravated Robbery Charges


On the 29th of June 2014 about 10:10pm two males entered the Z service station located on the intersection of Cameron Road and 11th Ave.

The males had their faces coved with bandanas and one was brandishing a knife and the other a knuckle duster weapon. The males have threatened the shop keeper and taken money, cigarettes and food.

The males have decamped from the scene running down St John Street and getting into an awaiting vehicle driven by a third male. The vehicle has driven off at speed down 11th Avenue towards Waihi Road.

As a result of Police enquiries three suspects have been arrested. The stolen property has been recovered and the three males aged 17, 20 and 22 have been held in custody to appear in the Tauranga District Court this morning.

There are no outstanding offenders and there were no injuries to the service station attendant.

If anyone has any further information to offer, please contact Acting Detective Sergeant Schrafft at the Tauranga Police station on 577 4389, or Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.
