Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Po­lice are look­ing for the own­ers of a hoard of stolen build­ing equip­ment dis­cov­ered at a Pen­rose prop­erty.

Nail guns, grass cut­ters, saws and ear­muffs were among the $20,000 worth of goods found.

Orewa po­lice were search­ing the ad­dress on a sep­a­rate mat­ter on April 24 when they came across the tools and gear.

Of­fi­cers from Mt Welling­ton were called in to col­lect it and are now look­ing for its own­ers.

“A lot have se­rial num­bers on them.

“Peo­ple need to take note and re­port the num­bers if their tools are stolen,” says con­sta­ble Luke Dod­son.

Only a few of the tools have been iden­ti­fied from other crimes, in­clud­ing thefts from cars.

“We’re try­ing to trace where the equip­ment came from,” says Mr Dod­son.

Peo­ple want­ing to claim the equip­ment will have to pro­vide de­tails about its con­di­tion.

A 25-year-old man was ar­rested and charged with re­ceiv­ing and will ap­pear in the North Shore Dis­trict Court on May 22.

To claim the goods, con­tact the Mt Welling­ton po­lice on 526-7300.
