Youth arrested for robbery
The Waiuku Police have arrested a 14 year old after Orchard and Fields was robbed earlier today.
This morning, (Wednesday 7 June) a person has gone into the fruit and vegetable store on Queen Street, and has attempted to take money and several other items.
A weapon was presented, and the local Police were immediately called. Thankfully no one was harmed in the incident.
A short time after the robbery occurred, Waiuku Police were able to locate the weapon and arrest a 14 year old, who will appear before the courts with regards to the robbery.
Waiuku Police are currently speaking two others in relation to the incident.
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.
