■ Norse­wood/Dan­nevirke/ Pon­garoa:

On July 19 an ad­dress on Nga­paeruru Road Dan­nevirke was en­tered and food stolen from a freezer. Late on July 21 Dan­nevirke Po­lice and Fire and Emer­gency at­tended a rub­bish fire be­hind a com­mer­cial premise on High Street.

Overnight 22-23 July a quad bike was stolen from a farm on Edge­ley Road Norse­wood. It was a red Suzuki, 2010 750, chas­sis num­ber R407-126437 with a red tool box.

There were eight fam­ily vi­o­lence in­ci­dents at­tended by Dan­nevirke Po­lice over the last week.

A breed­ing ewe was shot in the Pon­garoa area. It is likely some­one has at­tempted to shoot the an­i­mal for meat or de­lib­er­ately shot the an­i­mal to cause harm. Both are crimes and of­fend­ers will be held to ac­count if iden­ti­fied and grounds for suit­abil­ity to hold a firearms li­cences op­posed.

■ Eketa¯ huna/Pahiatua/ Woodville:

Pahiatua po­lice at­tended two ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dents over the week and at­tended a fam­ily vi­o­lence in­ci­dent. One per­son was ar­rested for breach of court bail.

Eketa¯ huna po­lice are fol­low­ing up leads around re­cent graf­fiti in the town.

Woodville po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the theft of a gas hot wa­ter unit from a lo­cal child care fa­cil­ity and the wil­ful dam­age of the elec­tric car charg­ing sta­tions on the main street of town.
