Fifty brand new barbeques were stolen from Mitre 10 Mega in Flat Bush on Monday night.
Police believe the thieves may have used a truck, making multiple visits to the hardware store.
Police are asking the public to be vigilant of Weber and Everdure BBQs being offered for cheap or at discounted prices, particularly on platforms such as Facebook marketplace.
Counties Manukau East area prevention manager Inspector Chris Barry said it was disappointing businesses were being targeted at a time when many were struggling due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Anyone with information on the stolen BBQs should phone the Counties Manukau Tactical Crime Unit on 105, quoting file number 200505/8672.
In response to the severe water shortages, we are encouraging Aucklanders to install rainwater tanks at home by scrapping resource consent fees.
Police say they have exhausted all leads for finding Eloi Rolland, 18, who has been missing from Auckland for almost four months.
The teen, who has limited English, has not been seen since he was captured on CCTV at the Britomart train station on March 7, where he caught a train to New Lynn's Fruitvale Rd station. It's understood he was in the vicinity of Piha Rd and Scenic Drive at 9.18am, but this is where the trail ends.
After more than 1600 hours searching for Rolland, police ended the physical search in May, pending reports of new information or evidence.
Rolland's sister, Aurore Rolland, told Stuff the family were "really sad" the search had been suspended.
"We [are at] the point where we are waiting for a miracle. We believe [he] is not dead in the sea at Piha Beach. Things need to be done, even if we have to search during our entire life."
