Three teenagers tracked and arrested after dairy robbed at knife-point

News from NZ Police
Three teenagers are in Police custody following the robbery of a dairy in Carterton at about 9.30am yesterday morning.

The males, aged 16, 17 and 19, entered the dairy armed with a knife and made off with cash and cigarettes in a car that police believe had been stolen earlier from Stokes Valley.

Thanks to information from quick thinking members of the public, Police were able to track the offenders through Carterton with a police dog.

Within an hour and a half of the robbery, the police dog located the three hiding in bushland; two were arrested without incident but one thought he could outrun the police dog. He couldn’t, and is now in the cells with his partners in crime.

All three will appear in Court on Monday charged with a number of offences including aggravated robbery.

Thanks to everyone who helped us catch these three people.
