Police are investigating the armed robbery of a cash-in-transit van in Auckland this afternoon.

The robbery happened just after 1pm, on Link Drive near Placemakers on Auckland's North Shore.

It's understood two men were involved.

Witnesses say one man remained in a silver Audi station wagon, while the second man aimed a firearm at the van staff.

The Audi then sped off towards Target Road.

No one was injured, but the police say van staff are shaken by what's happened.

Police are appealing for any witnesses, or someone who may have dashcam footage of the holdup to come forward.
