Aggravated Robbery Takanini - update

Police investigating an incident at the Takanini Liquor Bargain last week
have arrested two suspects and charged them with aggravated robbery. A 25
year old man and 23 year old man, both from South Auckland, were seen on CCTV
footage entering the liquor store at about 8:45pm on Thursday 25 July. One
suspect presented a firearm and threatened to shoot the victims, one of whom
suffered a broken jaw and the other a fractured eye socket.

Police would like to thank the public for their assistance in identifying the
offenders. Both offenders were apprehended after being recognised in CCTV
images that have been made public since the incident.

Police are still seeking the dark coloured Mazda Familia that the offenders
drove, the firearm used in this robbery, as well as the money that was stolen
from the store.

Police would like to hear from anyone who has information that may lead to
the recovery of the firearm or stolen cash.

Please call Detective Brendon Pearson from the Papakura CIB on 09 295 0256 or
021 191 2073. If you wish to remain anonymous please call Crimestoppers on
0800 555 111.
