New speed lim­its

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place - PO­LICE RE­PORT

New Speed lim­its:

Po­lice are warn­ing driv­ers to ad­here to new speed lim­its around schools, tak­ing ef­fect July 3. Mata­mata of­fi­cer in charge Blair Hayde says there will be zero tol­er­ance for driv­ers break­ing the lim­its.


Po­lice re­sponded to four bur­glar­ies in Mata­mata and Wa­haroa last week.

Three in­ter­fer­ences with ve­hi­cles were re­ported, and Hayde says to re­duce th­ese in­ci­dences, re­move valu­ables, and lock cars se­curely. He says any­one who has had to abandon their ve­hi­cle on a coun­try road should re­trieve it as soon as pos­si­ble.

A num­ber of elec­tronic items were stolen from Te Kura O Wa­haroa last week. Hayde says some stolen items were lo­cated but the ma­jor­ity are still un­ac­counted for. He is en­cour­ag­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion to come for­ward so the items can be re­turned to the school and get the thieves be­fore the courts.


Po­lice made 15 ar­rests last week, in­clud­ing five for war­rants and bail breaches, four for drug re­lated of­fences, two for shop lift­ing, one for as­sault and two peo­ple were ar­rested and charged for bur­glary.
