Central Leader - - News -

Scrap metal thefts are on the rise and po­lice are warn­ing peo­ple to be­ware of thieves pos­ing as con­trac­tors.

Se­nior sergeant Hirone Ware­tini says the prob­lem is Auck­land-wide and Hous­ing New Zealand ten­ants are be­ing par­tic­u­larly tar­geted.

He says thieves are pre­tend­ing to be con­trac­tors sent to clean cop­per spout­ing.

Res­i­dents who are ap­proached should check with their branch man­ager to see if the main­te­nance has been sched­uled.

They should also take the name of the con­trac­tor and the de­tails of their ve­hi­cle.
