Between June 16 and 17 A Tawari St property was burgled and a green toyota Rav4, with the number plate YU3484, was stolen.
A Jones St property in Waharoa was entered through a window and items including cash were taken from drawers.
A Taihoa south Rd cow shed was burgled with diesel and petrol taken. Matamata sergeant Craig Thorne also advised residents to drive to the conditions and be aware that in the colder weather the roads could be damp and slippery. He also said to be aware of sunstrike, which was more likely to occur at this time of year because the sun is lower in the sky. Keep your windscreen clean, inside and out as dust and grime on the windscreen can make the effects of sunstrike much worse. If you experience sunstrike, it may be best to pull over and wait. He also said to drive more cautiously when it was foggy.
