Police are hunting a group of robbers who stole a large amount of jewellery from a West Auckland store last night.
The offenders went into Michael Hill at the West City Mall in Henderson at 6pm and took off with the jewellery, leaving the scene in a car.
A staff member today told the Herald she was not allowed to talk about the robbery and could not say what value the jewellery taken amounted to.
A shopping centre spokesperson provided a statement to the Herald.
