Police are looking for a man who wore a bright orange high-vis jacket, yellow diving goggles and a purple cap during a robbery at a Timaru petrol station.

Detective Senior Sergeant Richard Quested said police are appealing for information following a robbery at NPD petrol station on Evans St at 5.20am today.

The man demanded money before leaving on foot with a sum of cash, he said.

“While the victim was not injured during the incident, they are understandably very shaken and are receiving support,” Quested said
While there’s no official dress-code for robbing a petrol station, common-sense would suggest that perhaps this man was rather inexperienced when it came to robberies, or, he was just putting safety first.
Either way, Worksafe would be pleased.
