Chains cut to gain en­try

North Harbour News - - NEWS -

Last week there were two bur­glar­ies, one to a res­i­den­tial prop­erty and the other to a com­mer­cial prop­erty.

At the com­mer­cial prop­erty, en­try was gained by cut­ting chains on a gate. A large quan­tity of build­ing equip­ment was taken.

The res­i­den­tial prop­erty was tar­geted for usual items such as large screen tele­vi­sions.

A ve­hi­cle that was bro­ken into was only left for a short time, but a num­ber of ex­pen­sive items were on the dash­board in clear view to any­one walk­ing pass.

I can’t em­pha­sise enough the im­por­tance of tak­ing these items with you when you leave your ve­hi­cle alone.

One ve­hi­cle was re­ported stolen. It is a blue Toy­ota Toyoace flat deck truck with the reg­is­tra­tion CKJ816.

If you see this ve­hi­cle in your trav­els then con­tact po­lice.

I have been made aware of a num­ber of scams in the past few weeks. Listed are a few that have been re­ported:

Scam One

Peo­ple re­ceive a text mes­sage claim­ing they have won large amounts of money and all they have to do is text or email their de­tails and the money will be paid to them.

Scam Two

A fe­male calls peo­ple telling them their com­puter is full of viruses. She tells them she can fix it but needs their de­tails and email ad­dress.

Scam Three

Peo­ple have re­ceived a call claim­ing they are owed thou­sands of dol­lars from the bank. The caller claims to be a ‘ ‘ re­claim ex­pert’’. To ac­cess the thou­sands peo­ple are be­ing asked to send them some money.

If you re­ceive a phone call of­fer­ing money or any­thing that sounds too good to be true then it is most prob­a­bly a scam.
