Police are appealing to the public for information after two men allegedly ransacked a store at an east Auckland shopping centre.
Video posted to social media shows two people enter Tj Handcrafted at Botany Town Centre in the afternoon of July 11.
One of them uses an instrument to smash a glass cabinet before stuffing items from it into a bag.
Both offenders then smash their way into a second large cabinet on the other side of the store and place more items into their bags, before breaking into a third cabinet and taking its contents.
The two offenders were inside the store for about 90 seconds, based on CCTV footage shared on social media.
A woman who appears to be a store employee was present during the incident.
It’s not the first time the business has been targeted by thieves.
The store was also broken into at about 1.30am on April 20.
Police said at the time investigators were making follow-up enquiries including of CCTV footage.
Prior to that incident, the store was the site of an alleged aggravated robbery on January 10.
One of the suspects was armed with a shotgun and a quantity of jewellery was taken, police said.
Two men were charged in relation to that matter and were before the courts.

“Around 2.30pm police received reports of two unknown males entering a retail address, where they have taken several items.
