Shoplifters caught

Police received a report at 7.59pm on Saturday 3 March, that two males and one female stole boxes of alcohol from the Tuakau Liquor Store and left in a vehicle.

A Police spokesperson said there was no hold-up or robbery. Some liquor was stolen but no one was threatened or hurt inside the store. The vehicle was located by police, where it was followed after it failed to stop. Road spikes were successfully deployed before police made the decision to abandon the fleeing driver incident.

The vehicle was located a short time after and a police dog was used to track to an address in Pukekohe. A 19 year old female was subsequently arrested and charged in relation to shoplifting.

Police enquires are ongoing and Police are unable to rule out the possibility of any further charges being laid against individuals.

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.
