Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 25:

Po­lice helped South Waikato of­fi­cers carry out two search war­rants in Mata­mata. A 22-year-old woman and a 29-year-old man from sep­a­rate ad­dresses were ar­rested for pos­ses­sion of cannabis and will be ap­pear­ing in the Mor­rinsville Dis­trict Court.

Fri­day, Septem­ber 27:

A Mata­mata per­son was ar­rested for breach of liquor ban on Price Tce about 10.30pm.

Mata­mata po­lice set up check­points across town. Ten tick­ets for traf­fic of­fences were is­sued.

Po­lice had to try and lo­cate a man who had wo­ken up on the grass in Mata­mata and claimed he had been drugged. The last thing the man, in his 20s, could re­mem­ber was be­ing in Hamil­ton and he couldn’t tell po­lice where he was. When po­lice found him he was ex­tremely drunk but ada- mant he had been drugged. Po­lice in­quiries re­vealed the man had been driven to Mata­mata from Hamil­ton by his brother and dropped off at his un­cle’s house. He had then wan­dered down the wrong street and ap­par­ently fallen asleep. There was no in­di­ca­tion he had been drugged.

Sun­day, Septem­ber 29:

Po­lice were called to Mata­mata Med­i­cal Cen­tre at 9pm af­ter a 21-year-old woman came in with hor­rific head and fa­cial in­juries. It ap­pears she had run to a neigh­bour for help fol­low­ing an as­sault and was then taken to the cen­tre. Po­lice lo­cated and ar­rested a 25-year-old man with wound­ing with in­tent to in­jure and as­sault with in­tent to in­jure. He ap­peared in the Hamil­ton Dis­trict Court on Mon­day.

Two peo­ple were pro­cessed for driv­ing with ex­cess breath al­co­hol and will be ap­pear­ing in Mor­rinsville Dis­trict Court.

A boat parked on the back lawn of a Smith St prop­erty was bro­ken into some­time dur­ing the week and three fish­ing rods, a VHF ra­dio, a tackle box, and a berley pot were taken.
