Thieves hit schools
External speakers at public schools are the latest targets of thieves. Inspector Vaughn Graham says there have been reports of school PA system speakers being stolen from across Auckland. Graham says offenders are removing cages from around external speakers before taking off with them. It is disappointing and will cost a lot to replace, he says. Graham is appealing for information on the thefts and expects the speakers are being used as car stereo systems. Call Graham at Mt Wellington Police on 526 7300 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 to report information anonymously.
