Just before 10pm on Wednesday 14 June 2017, Gas Waiuku on Kitchener Road was the subject of an aggravated robbery.
Three people entered the petrol station, armed with a weapon, and took several items.
Waiuku Police were nearby, and with units from Pukekohe in attendance, were able to arrest one male in relation to the incident.
A police dog unit was able to track the male, who wasn't too far from scene.
The male has since appeared in the Pukekohe District Court, and has been charged with aggravated robbery.
The Crime Squad are continuing their investigation and will be making further inquiries.Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
