Police are searching for "an unknown number of offenders" after an Auckland liquor store was ram-raided and burgled overnight.

Ram-raided liquor store in Herne Bay.

A police spokesperson told 1News that a vehicle was used to get into the Liquorland Boutique on Jervois Road in Herne Bay just before 3.30am.

"An unknown number of offenders have taken some items before fleeing from the scene in a vehicle."

The shop's smashed front door windows were boarded up on Thursday morning.

At a nearby post office on Jervois Road, a woman told 1News all the glass was cleared by the time she got to work.

By her count, the liquor store had been ram-raided five times.

"The landlord won’t let them put up bollards, maybe because of the look?"

1News has contacted Liquorland Boutique.

Investigations are "in the very early stages", the spokesperson said.
