House trashed

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Ob­scene graf­fiti, a slashed couch and pud­dles of engine oil are among the hor­rors one man is clean­ing up af­ter his house was bro­ken into. The break-in hap­pened some­time be­tween Satur­day and Thurs­day last week while he was away, Avon­dale po­lice act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Ralph Bosma says. Graf­fiti was sprayed on walls and fur­ni­ture while used engine oil was poured over clothes, beds, walls and the floor. ‘‘It is un­usual. We don’t think it was per­sonal though,’’ Mr Bosma says. De­spite the dam­age very lit­tle was stolen. Po­lice are wait­ing on foren­sic re­sults. Any­body with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call crime scene at­ten­dant Charles at Avon­dale Po­lice on 302 6400 or Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111.
