A witness told the Herald at least two people were taken into custody and could be seen in the back of a police car outside the premises.
At one point, an officer could be seen adjusting the mask of a man sitting in the back.
It is understood the pair broke in via a side door before police were alerted shortly afterwards.
The witness said a vehicle thought to belong to those involved could be seen with tools inside.
The incident happened during a night of mayhem after several reports of gunshots around the city.
At least seven suburbs were caught up - including those in South Auckland and West Auckland.
