Footage has emerged of a "reckless" theft involving a group of young men allegedly smashing a bakery shopfront only to steal a can of soft drink.
CCTV shows the youths ramming the window and security fence of Pakuranga Bakery in Auckland, New Zealand before leaving with a can of energy drink just before midnight on December 3.
The car reversed repeatedly into the bakery and broke through security measures before the alleged offenders are seen shimmying under the bent metal gates to search the shop.
After finding the cash register empty they allegedly grabbed the drink and fled in a second car.
Damage to the bakery was reportedly assessed at $20,000.
Police officers arrested four of the alleged offenders when their getaway car was seen driving "in a dangerous manner" and spikes were used to blow their tyres.
Police understand the group of offenders also attempted to break into a vape shop before trying the bakery.
