Cromwell bur­glar­ies con­tinue

Central Otago Mirror - - FEATURES -

CROMWELL Po­lice are urg­ing peo­ple who see any sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour to con­tact them as soon as pos­si­ble rather than wait­ing to re­port in­for­ma­tion, fol­low­ing an­other bur­glary in the town.

Po­lice Sergeant Mike Wil­liams, of Cromwell, said there had been yet an­other op­por­tunis­tic bur­glary in the town, which was of con­cern to po­lice.

Mr Wil­liams said it was very im­por­tant that peo­ple who saw any­thing sus­pi­cious to re­port it to Po­lice straight away so they had a bet­ter chance at ap­pre­hend­ing those re­spon­si­ble.

Fol­low­ing a re­cent bur­glary, he said wit­nesses came for­ward to re­port sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour but not un­til well af­ter the cul­prit had de­parted.

‘‘The last thing we want to do is at­tend a bur­glary only to find out the of­fender had been seen ear­lier but had got away.’’

Mr Wil­liams also wished to re­mind peo­ple that it was time to re­alise they needed to take re­spon­si­bil­ity for per­sonal pos­ses­sions and start lock­ing homes and ve­hi­cles.

Mean­while, Cromwell Po­lice ex­e­cuted an­other drug war­rant this week and as a re­sult a 23-yearold fe­male will face mul­ti­ple charges in the Alexan­dra District Court on Novem­ber 17.
