Police in Counties Manukau are investigating an attempted robbery of the Happy Bear Dairy in Papakura.

At about 4:00PM on Saturday 27th June a blue Subaru stopped in front of the Happy Bear Dairy on Youngs Street in Papakura. Three males, one armed with a screwdriver, exited the vehicle and attempted to rob the dairy.

Luckily, the dairy owner, who had friends in the store at the time, activated the fog cannon as they saw the suspects entering. Two of the suspects have immediately fled the store, while the third has stopped at the fridge and has stolen some drinks before exiting. They’ve all jumped back into the Subaru and left the area. 

The first suspect can be described as:

Male

  • Grey hoodie
  • Black bag with white Nike tick
  • Black shoes with distinct red markings around the sole of the shoe.
  • Carrying a screwdriver 

The second suspect can be described as:

  • Male
  • Large build
  • Two-toned orange and red jacket
  • Tanned shorts

The third suspect can be described as:

  • Male
  • White long sleeved shirt
  • Grey trousers
  • Face covered with orange clothing

Police investigations have revealed that the Subaru they arrived in was stolen from a service lane near the Papakura library at around 3:40PM, on the same day as the Happy Bear attempted robbery. A white BMW was seen in the area and is likely connected to the males who have stolen the Subaru. Police are not suggesting that the men who stole the vehicle are involved in the attempted robbery, however they would like to speak to them as the same Subaru is seen in the CCTV footage only 20 minutes later outside the Happy Bear Dairy.

If anyone recognises these people or can help in any way, please contact Counties Manukau Police.
