Police have arrested a 27-year-old man in connection with
the robbery of a north Dunedin dairy which left a shop
assistant badly shaken.
Armed police swooped on the Quarry Dairy in North Road last
Monday after a masked man forced the female worker into a
back room and made off with cash, cigarettes and a cellphone.
The man arrested today faces a charge of aggravated robbery
and is due to appear in the Dunedin District Court tomorrow.
Police say they are not seeking any one else in relation to
the incident and have thanked the public for their help.
