From Morning Report, 8:23 am on 29 April 2019

Police have recovered eight of the 11 guns stolen from a Palmerston North police station on Thursday. The robbery raises questions about how secure guns handed in to police will be, as the government moves ahead with plans to buy back and destroy military-style semi automatic weapons. Mike Clement is the Deputy Commissioner for National Operations. One of the 11 stolen was a prohibited firearm that had been handed in under the amnesty... Thankfully it is one of the eight that have been recovered," He tells Gyles Beckford.
