A witness is still in shock after hearing one of the thieves involved in a jewellry heist on Auckland’s Queen St, state that he was “only 13” and to “let him go”. Members of the public and an off-duty officer jumped in to stop the brazen daylight raid, NZ Herald reports. “The other six boys appeared to be no older than 16. And all had weapons – either crowbars, hammers, hatchets or blades.” The eyewitness said he was shocked by the amount of sheer violence these young men were prepared to use towards the public.
