Security guards robbed outside bank

1:50 pm on 12 April 2011

Security guards taking money to a bank in Auckland were robbed at gunpoint outside the bank at about 10.40am on Tuesday.

They were delivering cash to a Westpac branch at the Westfield mall in Albany.

No one was hurt and the offenders did not enter the bank itself.

Police say the robbers left in a vehicle, drove to a nearby supermarket and then drove from there in a white Toyota Camry station-wagon.
