Armed robbers target security van

Auckland Police are now on the hunt for three men involved in the aggravated robbery of an Armourguard security van.
The incident occurred at the Lynfield, Auckland branch of ASB Bank at around 6:20pm last night, the bank sharing a carpark with a Countdown supermarket.
Detective Mark Greaves of the Avondale CIB says two men robbed staff at gunpoint, while a third person drove the getaway vehicle.
“These men were well covered up in overalls and masks, and they had very significant firearms,” he says. “One was carrying what was described as an assault riffle and another person had a shotgun.”
The trio made off with an undisclosed amount of cash, fleeing the scene in a silver Nissan, registration EBH925, which was left abandoned in Orcades Place.
