Police have made arrests in separate investigations of two aggravated robberies of dairies in the eastern Bay of Plenty.
The Avenue Dairy in Whakatane was robbed on Monday and a day later police arrested five males.
On Friday search warrants located further evidence of the robbery and two more offenders, police said.
All seven will reappear on February 22 in Whakatane District Court. Five are in custody and two had been bailed under strict conditions.
There is also a prosecution proceeding for an unrelated robbery of the Edgecumbe Main Street Dairy on Tuesday.
A 17-year-old Edgecumbe man and a 15-year-old Edgecumbe youth were arrested Friday.
The 17-year-old is also facing charges related to the shooting of the dairy owner with an air gun, causing minor injuries.
He has been remanded in custody to reappear in Whakatane District Court on February 14.
