Armed Robbery at Hamilton Liquor Store


Armed Robbery at Hamilton Liquor Store


About 8:15pm on Thursday 15 August 2013, the shopkeeper at Super Liquor Lynden Court, Chartwell was the victim of an Aggravated Robbery.

Two males entered the store and threatened the shopkeeper.

They took cash from the till and an amount of alcohol before running into Rossister Place where police believe a vehicle may have been waiting.

About 8:10pm on Friday the 16th of August 2013, Police believe the same two offenders entered the Tuhikaramea Superette Hamilton. One was in possession of a crescent and the other had a pistol.

They again threatened the two shopkeepers demanding cash and cigarettes before leaving with both.

About 10:25pm they targeted the TAB, adjacent to the Workingman's Club on King St Hamilton.

The offenders entered by smashing the front window and threatened the staff member with a pistol, demanding access to the safe.

They left the scene with an amount of cash and other items.

In all three incidents, the offenders were wearing similar clothing and made little or no attempt to disguise their identities.

Police are appealing for help from the public in identifying the persons in the attached CCTV photos while urging caution that these men should not be approached. Police are concerned with the escalation in their activity and are appealing for help from the public to prevent further offending.

Persons with any information are requested to please contact Acting Detective Sergeant Andrew Mortimore at the Hamilton Police on 8586200 or anonymously via crime stoppers.
