Waikato District Police posted pictures to their Facebook page on Monday showing a white sedan abandoned in the doorway of a Mobil service station in Karapiro on State Highway 1.

They warned morning motorists looking for a fill up to be aware the station was closed.

"If you work at a servo, remember your safety is paramount and if you own one keep up with your security," police said.
