Police are searching for a group of armed bandits who have robbed three Auckland liquor stores in the last couple of days.

A car, which was stolen by a woman from outside a house in Waterview on Saturday, was involved in at least three heists on Monday and Tuesday.

The car was a silver Toyota Corsa with the registration EHC256.

Three offenders, one of whom had a crowbar, robbed the WK Wines and Spirits store on Karangahape Rd in central Auckland on Monday. The trio fled in the stolen Toyota.

Two offenders armed with a hammer and a baseball bat robbed the Manukau Liquor Centre in Everglade Drive and the Mahia Rd Liquor Centre on Tuesday.

In both robberies, the same getaway car was used. Alcohol and cash were taken in each case.

Detective Sergeant Dave Honiss was certain someone would recognise the people in the CCTV footage.

"With the assistance of the public we can apprehend these offenders quickly and prevent further crime from being committed," he said

Still shots taken from CCTV footage from two of the robberies clearly show the offenders' faces.

Anyone who recognises the offenders should contact Honiss on 09 353 0385 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
