Two men, one armed with a double barrelled sawn-off shotgun, robbed a bar in Pakuranga this week.
Metro Bar on Ti Rakau Drive was the target of an aggravated robbery in the early hours of Tuesday morning, with two offenders entering the bar at 12.20am and stealing cash.
Detective constable Paul Mo said one of the men was armed with a double barrelled sawn-off shotgun. The other man was unarmed.
He said Counties Manukau Police are investigating the incident.
The offenders pulled up outside the bar in a white Subaru Legacy station wagon, registration EYE491, which was stolen earlier from Sunnyhills.
They removed cash from within the premises, putting the money into a black and red bag,
before leaving the bar.
The stolen Subaru Legacy was found abandoned a short time later on Ennis Avenue near Gossamer Drive.
No one was injured during the incident.
Police have supplied images and are appealing for information which may lead to the identity of the two men in the images and information in relation to the aggravated robbery.
