A woman is the latest person to be arrested following an aggravated robbery of a Tauranga dairy yesterday.
The Viking Dairy in Grange Rd was targeted by a robber carrying a knife about 4.30pm, who tripped and fell as he fled with an entire till.
Police announced the arrest of a 25-year-old woman this afternoon.
The woman appeared in the Tauranga District Court today and has been remanded on bail.
A 27-year-old Tauranga man was also arrested this afternoon in relation to the same incident. He is expected to appear in court on Friday.
Detective Senior Sergeant Greg Turner said the quick arrests were a direct result of members of the public taking the time to note and record the registration number of a motor vehicle used in the offending.
"Local criminals need to take note of Western Bay of Plenty detectives' high batting average and quick resolution of recent aggravated robberies in Tauranga,'' he said.
''The message is simple - offend and we will catch you - and it is just not worth the jail time for what have been small amounts of cash and cigarettes."
