A pint-sized vehicle was used in an unsuccessful ram raid of
a Dunedin shop - the second such attempt in the city this
The DTR store on King Edward St was targeted on Wednesday
night, but police have stopped short of saying it was linked
to the earlier failed raid of a petrol station.
A Suzuki Alto, stolen from Hillside Rd, was used in the
attempted ram raid at the store's rear entrance on Glasgow
St, Sergeant Steve Aitken said.
The thieves were unable to gain access, he said.
Forensics were being carried out on the car, and he confirmed
there was no CCTV of the ram raid.
On Monday morning a Toyota Hilux was driven into the door of
the Caltex Valley petrol station, as the thieves failed to
make off with an ATM.
