Rosedale ram raid goods re­cov­ered


Skate­boards stolen from a North Shore store have been re­cov­ered by po­lice on the other side of the city.

Ul­ti­mate Surf & Skate in Rosedale was ram raided in the early hours of June 3, with 17 CCTV cam­eras catch­ing the act on film.

Store owner An­dre Newth said more than 10 skate­boards were taken in the smash and grab that also caused dam­age to 23 surf­boards. De­tec­tive Sergeant Nick Sal­ter said the North Shore Tac­ti­cal Crime Unit ex­e­cuted search war­rants in the Waiuku area on June 13 and ar­rested two adults along with a 16-year-old in re­la­tion to the in­ci­dent.

The two adults were due to ap­pear in North Shore Dis­trict Court on June 19 on mul­ti­ple charges in­clud­ing bur­glary, un­law­ful tak­ing of seven ve­hi­cles, at­tempted un­law­ful tak­ing of another ve­hi­cle and fail­ing to stop for po­lice.

Newth said, at the time of the in­ci­dent, hav­ing to sort out the pa­per­work fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent was a pain, and the dam­aged surf­boards would be costly to re­pair. How­ever, Newth and the store have re­cov­ered from the bur­glary. ’’We have new shop win­dows and, bar a few re­me­dial re­pairs to be done, we are back to busi­ness as usual.’’

Newth added: ‘‘The ser­vice we have had from po­lice has been out­stand­ing.’’
