Police seeking vehicle in relation to Invercargill robbery

Police investigating a robbery in Invercargill this morning are urgently seeking sightings of a vehicle of interest.

A cash in transit van was robbed shortly after 9:10am today in the area of Kelvin and Spey streets.

Police are looking for a silver Subaru station wagon with vehicle registration GSP913, which was stolen from an Invercargill address yesterday evening.

There were three occupants in the vehicle, which was last seen heading south on Dee Street, after travelling the wrong way on Esk Street.

Anyone who sees this vehicle is asked to call 111, and not to approach, as the occupants are believed to be armed.

We would also like to hear from anyone who saw this vehicle driving erratically either before or after the robbery.
