A Colombo St dairy has been robbed. Three teenagers are accused of the crime.

The dairy on Colombo St between Purchas St and Cannon St was robbed at 6.45pm on Sunday.

In a statement, police said three teenagers aged 15, 16 and 17 were arrested, while a fourth evaded officers after the robbery. 

The three teens are due to appear in the Youth Court in Christchurch today to face a raft of charges including aggravated robbery and unlawfully taking a car. 

The owner of Edgeware Dairy declined speak with METRONEWS as he was busy with insurance and re-opening the shop.
