Police focusing on drugs
Police have been flat out dealing with investigating drug offences and again Crime Stoppers is proving a great tool.
I like to call this year’s campaign NO GROW BRO.
■ CRITTER PATROL
It seems some low life has been doing the rounds among rural properties. A grazing ram and two ewes were stolen from an address near the Old Pup Rd.
Police have a number of suspects, but ask again if anyone has any info please call on either 111 or Crime Stoppers 0800 555 111.
To all of the rural community, please keep a keen eye out and look out for each other. It seems some scumbags are targeting that community.
■ COMMUNITY PATROL
Great to see out local Community Patrol out on the weekend, loaded with a barbecue and experts who were securing number plates on vehicles
Please give them a wave and support them, because when are you sleeping, they are out and about using their own time to help protect this community.
Labour Weekend kicked off the busy time for us here. So far so good, however we are getting a number of reports of petty thefts and dishonesty offending.
Police are keen to kick these offenders out of town, because as a community this will not be tolerated.
■ ROAD RULES
As we head into a busy summer, here are a few housekeeping rules that will make your summer a lot more pleasant.
■ Have your vehicle up to date with registration and warrant of fitness.
■ Leaner and restricted drivers — stick to your licence conditions.
■ Adults and youth — wear a helmet while on a bike.
■ Slow down and stick to the 50km speed limit.
■ Plan before you party — as work drinks start please arrange a sober driver.
■ Make sure your gas bottle for the barbecue is full and ready for action. Roll on summer — happy days are here.
