Police are seeking seven people who disguised themselves in hoodies during a ram raid at a Waikato petrol station.

Two stolen cars were used in the incident at the Mobil station in Huntly at 4.15am on Wednesday.

Police say one of the cars, a silver Mazda Familia Sport, had been taken from the Waikato University carpark at Gate 3A on Tuesday.

The other, a silver Mazda Familia Hatchback, had been stolen from Smith Street in the Hamilton suburb of Frankton on the same day.

Police say one of the vehicles was used to ram the doors of the locked service station.

The sole employee inside escaped unharmed.

The seven, who had their faces concealed, entered the premises, took cigarettes from behind the counter and fled in the two vehicles.

One car was later located in Harris Street in Huntly, and the other in King Street in Cambridge.
