Auckland Antiques Store Robbed At Gunpoint

TVNZ is breaking a story about an Auckland antiques store being robbed at gunpoint:

“Auckland police are hunting robbers who held-up an antiques store at gunpoint.

At least two men wearing balaclavas and carrying handguns stole around $10,000 worth of jewellery from a store on Dominion Road.

It is believed the robbers then escaped in a stolen courier van.

A police helicopter has been searching the area.”

A few days ago the Kiwibank on Dominion Road and King Edward Street was also robbed at around noon on 28 August. And in June a Kiwibank (Mt Roskill) and ASB Bank (Balmoral) both on the long Dominion Road were held up.
