Ram raiders apprehended

Three people have been arrested following the most recent raid incident at a commercial premise in Warkworth in the early hours of March 24.

Also in March, police arrested and charged two teenagers following a ram raid incident at another commercial premise in Warkworth.

Two teenagers have also been charged following a recent alleged ram raid at a liquor store in Snells Beach.

North Area Commander Inspector Mark Fergus says in each incident, every one of the offenders was caught as they tried to leave the area.

“We are patrolling 24/7 in Warkworth. Offenders will be caught and held accountable,” he says.

Inspector Fergus says fleeing offenders have nowhere to hide thanks to a combination of ground units, live CCTV motorway cameras and the Police Eagle helicopter.

He adds that patrols from Orewa, North Shore and Waitakere respond to close the net on fleeing offenders.

All of those charged will be appearing in court.
