Four 16-year-olds have been arrested in relation to an aggravated robbery in Taumarunui last week.

All four have been charged with aggravated robbery and will appear in Taumarunui Youth Court on Wednesday 16 May.

Two of the teens were also charged with unlawful possession of an offensive weapon, and one with unlawful possession of a firearm.

About 8pm on Friday 11 May four males wearing balaclavas entered Mr Pizza on Hakiaha Street armed with a sawn-off firearm.

The group stole a sum of money from the cash register before leaving.

“Police yesterday executed two search warrants in response to information from the public,” Senior Sergeant Grant Alabaster says.

“Items including clothing and a firearm were located at one of the properties.

“It is rare to have a serious incident such as this occur in Taumarunui and I’d like to thank all those who assisted Police with our enquiries.”
