Police are focusing on two vehicles involved in a ram raid on a BP service station in Raglan this morning.

The stolen vehicles smashed into the BP 2Go Main Rd service station breaking the glass. The thieves took off with tobacco, cigarettes and chewing gum.

The ram raid happened at 4am and was caught on CCTV.

The petrol station was unmanned at the time, but a worker was due to start at 5.30am.


BP2Go Raglan manager Carla Eriepa said they were alerted to the ram raid by multiple alarms and her and two staff arrived to clean up the mess.

They were also carrying out a stock take of the store to see what else may have been taken.

Two glass sliding doors had smashed and the petrol station would re-open later today once new doors had been installed.

"It's a bit of a bad buzz," Eriepa said.

Meanwhile a police media spokesman said the enquiries were focusing on the two stolen vehicles used in the raid.

The Herald understands one has been found in Hamilton.
