Pair caught

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

A man and woman be­lieved to be be­hind a string of car break-ins have been nabbed by po­lice. In last Wed­nes­day’s Auck­land City Har­bour News Pon­sonby com­mu­nity polic­ing team Con­sta­ble Bren­don Muir warned users of the Me­ola Reef Re­serve car park in Pt Che­va­lier to take care of their valu­ables af­ter a num­ber of ve­hi­cles parked there were bro­ken into. As a pre­cau­tion the team was mon­i­tor­ing the car park. ‘‘We were watch­ing for a par­tic­u­lar car and par­tic­u­lar peo­ple af­ter they had used credit cards that weren’t theirs,’’ Mr Muir says. When the car re­turned to the park it was spot­ted by the of­fi­cers. ‘‘There was a lot of stolen prop­erty in the car like hand­bags and tools,’’ Mr Muir says. The pair are be­lieved to have been in­volved in other crime around Auck­land and are fac­ing theft and fraud-re­lated charges. The man has been re­manded in cus­tody un­til he reap­pears in court next week. Mr Muir says while it is a good re­sult peo­ple still need to take care to se­cure their be­long­ings.
