An Auckland convenience store owner is ready to give up after three burglaries at his shop in recent months.

Police responded to reports of a burglary at the Penrose Superette on Station Rd shortly after 2am this morning.

The owner of the store told the Herald that a group of four wearing masks, and some wearing gloves, took off with cigarettes and phones after kicking in the doors.

“I just want out – I’m over it,” he said.

“I’m ready to give up, this is the third time. I just can’t.”

The first time the store was hit, the thieves stole up to $14,000 worth of cigarettes.

The second time, the offenders were also after smokes but were only able to get their hands on some ice creams.

The owner said the police are due to return to the shop this morning to take fingerprints.
