NZ police investigating Gun City ram raid

Police are following strong lines of enquiry after this morning’s ram raid in Christchurch, Detective Senior Sergeant Damon Wells says.

About 3.20am, offenders used a stolen green-coloured Mazda Demio to break through the roller door at Gun City, on Cranford Street, Redwood.

Four individuals entered the store and have taken several items. Police are working to confirm what was stolen.

“We understand the concern around events involving firearms,” Detective Senior Sergeant Wells says. “Police are treating this seriously and are pursuing a number of leads to identify these offenders and locate the items they’ve stolen.

“After leaving the store, we know the offenders have travelled south on Cranford Street in a stolen black Subaru Forester. We hope that someone may have seen them and has information that can assist the investigation.
