Take care around firearms

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS -

Constable Wanaka re­minder safety.

‘‘When driv­ing, if you are car­ry­ing a firearm, the firearm is to be safely put away, in the boot if you have one,’’ he said.

The bolt and ammunition Greg No­let of has is­sued a

about firearm should be sep­a­rate from the weapon. A trig­ger guard is prefer­able.

If a loaded firearm is found in a ve­hi­cle a $150 fine will be is­sued and de­tails will be passed to the firearms team in Dunedin where li­cence sta­tus will be con­sid­ered.

Wanaka po­lice were mak­ing en­quiries into the bur­glary of the Lake Hawea Ho­tel and at­tended a crash on the Crown Range Road, caused by black ice.

Mo­torists should take care in shaded ar­eas and look out for heavy rain as rocks loos­ened in last week’s earth­quake were fall­ing, he said.
