■ Overnight on Oc­to­ber 11 van­dals broke into the old Tav­i­s­tock Ho­tel and broke sev­eral toi­let bowls, uri­nals and hand basins. The cost of the dam­age amounts to sev­eral thou­sand dol­lars. The of­fend­ers are still at large.

■ On Oc­to­ber 12 dur­ing the early hours, a farm shed was bur­gled. The of­fend­ers have stolen a large metal tool box full of fenc­ing tools — wire strain­ers wire cut­ters, crimpers etc. The tool box was very heavy and would have re­quired at least two peo­ple. The tools will prob­a­bly be of­fered for sale. Please ad­vise po­lice if you are of­fered any such equip­ment.

■ On Oc­to­ber 15 a fe­male pro­ba­tion client in the wait­ing room at Waipuku­rau Pro­ba­tion Of­fice. The re­cep­tion­ist left her desk and re­turned to find the client had left af­ter steal­ing her cell phone. It was cap­tured on CCTV and the cell phone was re­cov­ered.

■ Also on Oc­to­ber 15 of­fend­ers have stolen two large green tar­pau­lin cov­ers from CHB Col­lege long jump pits. These cov­ers were on loan and are val­ued at $500 each. They mea­sure 7m by 5m and have dis­tin­guish­ing marks on them. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion please con­tact ei­ther the po­lice or the col­lege.

■ On Oc­to­ber 17 a res­i­dent of Svensen Rd woke up to find that his car had been stolen from out­side his house. He no­ticed an­other sus­pi­cious look­ing ve­hi­cle parked nearby. It had a bro­ken win­dow and the ig­ni­tion had been tam­pered with. He re­ported the ve­hi­cle to po­lice and was in­formed it had been stolen from Hast­ings the pre­vi­ous night. It ap­peared the of­fend­ers had run out of petrol and aban­doned their stolen car, and taken the car from Svensen Rd, which was later re­cov­ered in Wairoa be­ing driven by a 15 year old with two 13 year old pas­sen­gers.

■ On Oc­to­ber 17 a Toy­ota van parked on High Street Waipawa had its num­ber plates stolen. These will more than likely be at­tached to the of­fender’s ve­hi­cle which will be used for crim­i­nal of­fend­ing.

■ On Oc­to­ber 20 three driv­ers were pro­cessed for ex­cess breath al­co­hol. A 44-year-old male and a 25-year-old male both re­turned breath al­co­hol read­ings of 600 and a 29-year-old fe­male re­turned a read­ing of 488 mi­cro­grams of al­co­hol per litre of breath.

■ A youth driver on a learner li­cence will also face an ex­cess breath al­co­hol charge, af­ter he rolled his car on a gravel road on Oc­to­ber 19r.

■ On Oc­to­ber 23 po­lice suc­cess­fully ex­e­cuted a search war­rant at a Waipuku­rau ad­dress, un­der the Mis­use of Drugs Act. Two ar­rests were made and the sub­jects, one of which has been held in cus­tody, will be fac­ing sev­eral charges.

■ Two bur­glar­ies have been re­ported af­ter the long week­end, one at Pour­erere Beach where an out­board mo­tor, div­ing equip­ment, a two-roomed tent and nu­mer­ous other items were stolen. The other was near Kairakau where a shed was en­tered and items stolen.

I re­mind bach own­ers to get pro-ac­tive with se­cu­rity.
