The Howick St John Ambulance station in east Auckland was broken into while officers were attending to emergency call-outs on Friday, Stuff reports. A number of items were stolen, including St John uniforms, cash, personal items, clothing and a lockbox. Cars belonging to staff were also broken into. One ambulance worker stated, “Us ‘ambos’ have been working long, hard 12-14 hour shifts, putting ourselves and our families at risk to help keep Aucklanders safe and well during the past 18 months of this pandemic. And this is the thanks we get.” St John East Auckland territory manager Mark Deoki agreed: “It is deplorable that anyone would do such a thing.”
