Matamata Chronicle - - News/opinion - By NICOLA STE­WART nicola.ste­wart@wrcn.co.nz

Po­lice are us­ing CCTV footage to iden­tify the of­fend­ers in two sep­a­rate bur­glar­ies in Mata­mata last week.

Two peo­ple broke into the Mata­mata RSA through a bath­room win­dow last Mon­day night and were caught on cam­era crawl­ing through the bar area. They stole a sig­nif­i­cant amount of spir­its, in­clud­ing bot­tles of Jim Beam, Jack Daniels, Black­heart rum, Coruba, Black Dou­glas whisky, Bac­ardi, Dram­buie and vodka.

They also took a cou­ple of bot­tles of bit­ters.

Po­lice said the first of­fender was wear­ing a dark hoodie, a grey-peaked cap, dark jeans, dis­tinc­tive black and white shoes, a red bag, white gloves and blackand-white-striped box­ers.

The se­cond was wear­ing light blue jeans and black shoes.

CCTV cam­eras also caught a per­son break­ing into a build­ing at Mata­mata Col­lege about 9pm on Thurs­day.

The of­fender stole an old black ACFR Veri­ton M480G com­puter and a key­board, leav­ing be­hind a screen that was dropped and smashed.

He then smashed the glass pan­els of an of­fice door and en­tered but took noth­ing.

He also smashed his way into the mu­sic block and again took noth­ing.
