Cash in transit robbery in Takanini

Cash in transit robbery in Takanini

Please attribute to Detective Sergeant Rob Hunkin, Counties Manukau Police.

Police are currently at the scene of an aggravated robbery that occurred at the Takanini Southgate shopping complex this morning.

Just after 11am, three heavily disguised offenders carrying a firearm approached security guards who were transporting cash back to the security van.

The offenders presented a firearm at the security guards and fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash. Thankfully the security guards were not injured during the robbery.

The offenders have then fled the scene in an older style silver Surbaru Legacy sedan which has since been recovered by police in the Bruce Pullman park area.

Police are making area enquires which includes reviewing CCTV footage and speaking to witnesses. We would like to hear from anyone else who may have witnessed the robbery.

If you have any information that could help our investigation, please contact Detective Sergeant Rob Hunkin, Counties Manukau Major Crime Team 0508 422 443. Alternatively, information can also be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
