Ram raid thieves have struck again – this time smashing their way through a shop in downtown Auckland for cigarettes.
Police were called to the Wynyard Mart, on Halsey St, after reports of an incident shortly before 2.30am overnight.
CCTV security footage shown to the Herald shows a car pulling up to the store at 2.28am, before four people get out and attempt to kick their way through the front entrance doors.
After failing to get into the shop that way, they are seen getting back into the car and driving off.
The vehicle is then seen being reversed into the store – immediately breaking through the doors and causing severe damage.
The group then get out and tear through the shop; with two people immediately jumping over the store’s counter and heading straight for the cigarettes cabinet.
