WHITBY: Con­sta­ble Simon By­gate says dur­ing the school hol­i­days there were a cou­ple of bur­glar­ies of ru­ral prop­er­ties around the Hay­ward­sJudge­ford area, and a few cases of thefts from cars in Pa­pakowhai be­cause peo­ple are still leav­ing valu­able in their cars overnight.

On a pos­i­tive note, he says an ob­ser­vant Whitby res­i­dent no­ticed a man wear­ing a high vis­i­bil­ity vest act­ing sus­pi­ciously on a prop­erty.

‘‘She called po­lice and kept ob­serv­ing him. He saw her and legged it be­fore po­lice ar­rived but I am sure she foiled a bur­glary. So just a re­minder that not all work­men are au­then­tic, so al­ways be on your guard.’’

TI­TAHI BAY: The Bay is hav­ing on-go­ing is­sues with off-road mo­tor­cy­cles be­ing driven on the road, says Con­sta­ble Hemi Tito.

‘‘It is a re­quire­ment firstly that all mo­tor­cy­cles that are rid­den on a road be war­ranted and reg­is­tered, and se­condly that the rider has a cur­rent mo­tor­cy­cle li­cence.’’

Any­thing other than this could re­sult in the mo­tor­cy­cle be­ing im­pounded and/ or in­fringe­ment notices is­sued to the rider. In some cases this is a safety is­sue for pedes­tri­ans as the mo­tor­bikes are be­ing rid­den on foot­paths. Res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to con­tact Mr Tito if they have any ques­tions.

MANA: Sev­eral cars had their tyres slashed in the Mana View Rd area in Cam­borne on Septem­ber 24, says Con­sta­ble Jonathan Westrupp.

‘‘I am told that there were at least eight cars in­volved. The cir­cum­stances sug­gest that who­ever did this was trav­el­ling on foot and may very well have been trav­el­ling home. I would like to know [whose ve­hi­cles] were in­volved so they can be fol­lowed up as ap­pro­pri­ate.’’

Mean­while, a red Honda 320 quad bike was stolen from a ru­ral prop­erty on Grays Rd on Septem­ber 2. Mr Westrupp is seek­ing in­for­ma­tion that may lead to it be­ing re­turned to its right­ful owner. Phone 439 0606.
