Police on Auckland's North Shore are investigating the armed robbery of an Armourguard security patrol.

The robbery happened outside the Smales Farm branch of the ASB bank in Takapuna just after 5pm on Wednesday.

Police say a man threatened security guards with a firearm before fleeing with an undisclosed sum of money.

He was picked up by another man in a silver Mazda Familia hatchback, which was dumped nearby. The men then left in a yellow hatchback, similar to a Mazda Atenza.
