leave a comment »

Police have found a car stolen in an Avalon home invasion and aggravated robbery on Saturday morning.

The blue BMW was recovered in Lower Hutt, two days after four men forced their way into and took the vehicle’s keys from occupants of a house on Charleston Avenue, Avalon.

Police appealed for anyone who had seen the BMW, registration ZX9069, on the roads over the past few days to contact them.

Police still are not ruling out the robbers were the same ones who staged a home invasion last Wednesday, in Stokes Valley in which a man was shot in the leg and a woman repeatedly bashed with a shotgun butt.

Police have urged Hutt Valley residents to be security conscious, telling them to lock their doors and report any suspicious behaviour following these two attacks.
