Tourists have been robbed in Nelson and Auckland in the past 24 hours or so.
Alas, the robbery in Nelson was accompanied by a bit of biffo.
But the greater haul – with the blessing of the city council – was taken by the plonkers who relieved travellers of their cash in Auckland.
Alf was given accounts of both incidents by NZ Herald.
In the Nelson incident, police are investigating after a German tourist was robbed early this morning.
