Four people have been charged over a robbery at commercial cleaning premises Philip Moore & Co in central Wellington on November 4.

Natasha Nelson, 22, Hohepa Boyce, 25, Tama Rawhiti, 27 and a second woman, 57, whose name is suppressed, all face a charge of participating in an organised criminal group contributing to aggravated robbery and kidnapping.

Boyce is also charged with possession of a firearm and of ammunition, while the unnamed woman is charged with wilfully attempting to pervert the course of justice by claiming she was the victim of the robbery.

She has been remanded for two weeks for psychiatric reports to be prepared.

Wellington District Court judge Tom Broadmore remanded Boyce in custody until next week to allow him to make a bail application.

Rawhiti was also remanded in custody and Nelson on bail until next month.

Is this the best summer ever?

Yes, without a doubt

It's great, but 2012/13 was even better

Can't quite recall the year, but there have been better

I long for the Summer of 69 (with apologies to Bryan Adams)

Whatever. I can't wait for winter
