Someone keeps ram-raiding businesses in Napier, and police want them to stop.
Two more stores were robbed on Sunday morning just after 1am, after three similar incidents earlier this week.
Police believe they're all linked.
In the latest thefts, a stolen white Toyota Carina sedan was reversed into two stores on Dickens St. Police almost caught the offender in the act, but they got away - hitting a police car in the process.
A short pursuit was called off for safety reasons.
"This offender needs to be apprehended before his reckless behaviour hurts an innocent member of the public," said Snr Sgt Neale Saunders.
Anyone with information, or who has seen the vehicle (registration ALZ163) should call police on (06) 831 0700 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111,
