Five arrested after crime spree in Waikato

3:23 pm on 5 August 2018

Five young people will appear in court tomorrow after attempting to rob a dairy in Waikato after stealing a car.

The five allegedly stole a car outside a house yesterday morning and drove to a dairy in Morrinsville.

The police said four of them entered the store, one armed with a knife, but fled without taking anything.

They then filled up the car at a petrol station and left without paying.

The car later fled police officers, eventually coming to a stop on the Waikato Expressway.

The five teenagers are due to appear in the Hamilton Youth Court tomorrow.
