Mata­mata po­lice are warning those in ru­ral ar­eas to keep valu­ables se­cured as farm bikes con­tinue to be tar­geted. ‘‘Keep bikes out of sight from the road, there are plenty of low lives that will take ad­van­tage of op­por­tu­ni­ties,’’ says Mata­mata po­lice sergeant Blair Hayde. It comes after weeks of re­ports of stolen farm bikes. A Suzuki quad bike has been seen on Fac­tory Rd, Wa­haroa, and en­quiries are con­tin­u­ing. A farm bike was taken from Wal­ton Rd and Wardville Rd. A Wrigley Place home was en­tered and the alarm ac­ti­vated. A re­tail premises on Tainui St was en­tered and liquor was tar­geted. The of­fender was found and charged.
