Central Leader - - NEWS -

Res­i­dents of an area tar­geted by bur­glars are be­ing thanked by po­lice for their help. Belfast St and Fredrick St, Hills­bor­ough, came to po­lice at­ten­tion af­ter a run of bur­glar­ies and re­ports of sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour in the area in re­cent weeks. There were re­ports of a man knock­ing on peo­ple’s door pur­port­edly look­ing for a lost puppy, Mt Roskill Com­mu­nity Polic­ing Team Sergeant James Cassin says. On Tues­day a man called to say a house alarm was go­ing off on Goodall St and a num­ber of other res­i­dents re­ported see­ing two sus­pi­cious-look­ing men run­ning across prop­er­ties. A 29-year-old West Auck­land man was ar­rested and is fac­ing charges of bur­glary, threat­en­ing to kill, and pos­ses­sion of an of­fen­sive weapon. Mr Cassin says the ar­rest was a col­lec­tive ef­fort be­tween po­lice and the com­mu­nity.
