A Huia St garage was en­tered. A moun­tain­bike was taken but was re­cov­ered from a nearby soc­cer field.

Fol­low­ing a party on Rimu St, po­lice said a 22-year-old man took a ve­hi­cle to ‘‘go home and get a munch’’.

He crashed the ve­hi­cle a few hun­dred me­tres down the road.

The driver ran away, while be­ing chased by the ve­hi­cle’s owner.

Later on, the owner of the ve­hi­cle went around to a Vin­cent St ad­dress and started smash­ing the win­dows of the driver’s ad­dress, which Mata­mata po­lice said just fright­ened the day­lights out of the driver’s par­ent.

Po­lice are fol­low­ing up on the cir­cum­stances and the dam­age to the house.
