Dramatic video footage has emerged online which shows a first-hand perspective from the thieves who targeted a south Auckland shopping centre on Monday.
The video footage appears to be filmed by the offenders who used three stolen vehicles to smash through the automatic door at Ormiston Town Centre shopping centre.
Police are currently investigating the raid which endangered security and cleaning staff.
Now new footage posted to social media on Wednesday night appears to shed more light on what went on during the raid.
In the footage, a group of people can be seen running through the shopping centre before filing into a Noel Leeming store.
The camera then shakes around showing products on shelves inside the store before the footage cuts to black. One person in the footage can be seen wearing black gloves. Two of the cars involved in the raid can also be seen parked in the mall in the video.
Police told media on Wednesday they are concerned social media notoriety is playing a role in the increase of ram-raids across the country.
It comes after Newshub obtained footage earlier in the week from inside the mall.
In videos, a silver car can be seen speeding into the mall and knocking over a table before racing out of shot.
Then a group of eight thieves sprint after the car while a white car follows in hot pursuit.
A third vehicle - a blue car - stops outside the 2degrees store in the mall and five more people jump out.
Four of the five people sprint further into the mall after the white and silver car, while the fifth person gets back into the blue car.
The blue car then reverses and speeds off in the direction of the two other vehicles.
The footage then continues from a different angle in the mall, which shows the three cars speeding through the mall at high speed with the thieves on foot following.
A third video shows the thieves loading up their cars outside Noel Leeming.
Police said they are continuing to investigate the ram raid. Speaking with AM on Thursday Counties Manukau detective inspector Karen Bright said police are taking the robberies very seriously.
"We treat them seriously, we do absolutely everything we can, we use a range of investigative tools and we really want to identify those responsible so that this offending does not continue."
After the incident Ormiston Town Centre said they'll be increasing security measures.
Anyone with information about this matter is asked to contact Police on 105, quoting P050366870.
