Aggravated robbery, Hamilton

Detective Sergeant Andre Kavanagh:




Hamilton Police are investigating the aggravated robbery of the Deanwell Superette on Deanwell Avenue this morning.

At approximately 6:55am three people entered the store armed with a large knife and a hammer.

They arrived in a stolen red Mazda Demio driven by a fourth person.

The Demio was stolen from a Plunket Terrace address overnight.

The store manager saw them arrive and locked himself in a back room.

The trio stole a large quantity of cigarettes and a number of smaller items.

The offenders fled the scene in the stolen vehicle which has since been recovered from Montgomery Crescent in Bader.

The vehicle was seized by Police and will be forensically examined.

Hamilton Police would like to hear from anyone who can identify any of the offenders pictured or provide any information about the robbery.

Getting To Zero: Challenging But Achievable

Today we released our draft report on how New Zealand should transition to a low-emissions economy. New Zealand has had climate change policies in place for some time but these have not been effective in reducing domestic emissions. For businesses, households, investors and consumers to manage the risks and seize the opportunities of moving to a low-emissions future, change is needed.

“Our report shows that major changes will be needed”, says our Chair, Murray Sherwin, “Emerging technologies are likely to play a large role in facilitating those changes and creating new opportunities for New Zealand. Our inquiry shows that, if credible and stable climate policy can be established now, businesses, households and consumers will be better able to plan for change and manage the risks of moving to a low-emissions economy.” More>>
