7:34 pm on 18 September 2016

Two 16-year-old boys have been arrested after a dairy in Christchurch was robbed by three people carring a baseball bat and a firearm.

Cash and cigarettes were stolen from the dairy on Division Street last night.

A short time later, the alleged offenders were found by police in a stolen vehicle, and were arrested after a chase.

They were set to appear in the city's District Court tomorrow.
