A series of three smash and grab burglaries throughout Central Auckland are believed to be linked and Police want your help to bring these people to account.

At 5:43am on Monday 6th June a stolen gold Toyota Hilux was used to gain entry to Storm Rides in Mt Albert. The suspects have been in the shop for several minutes and taken many e-scooters.

The second incident occurred at 2:30am on Wednesday 8th June. The same stolen gold Toyota Hilux was involved when two suspects used sledgehammers and crowbars to break the front doors of the Stihl shop in Mt Wellington. They have taken several tools and tool batteries and we get a good look at one of their faces. Someone will know who this is.

The third incident involved a different stolen vehicle, but is believed to be related based on similarities to the first two burglaries. At 5:15am on the 15th of June a stolen white Mazda Bongo van was used to ram into the store after attempts to break the door failed at the Stihl shop in Mt Albert.

The stolen Mazda Bongo van was discovered abandoned by police the next day 800m away from the shop on Norrie Ave.

The key to solving these burglaries could be identifying the man whose face is seen on the CCTV. Someone out there will know who he is. The ripple effect of ram raids on the community is extensive. If you can help put a stop to it call now at 0800 107 INFO.
