Tokoroa police are looking for residents who purchased anything from a garage sale at 253 Balmoral Dve recently.
Tokoroa Senior Sergeant Graeme Hill said it appeared that items sold at the garage sale were stolen.
‘‘We became aware of the situation when a person who went to a garage sale noticed items that had been stolen from a house of someone they knew,’’ Mr Hill said.
In other matters, Tokoroa police would like to commend the community for calling the police when they see bad driving on the roads.
‘‘The calls from the community save lives.
‘‘ Through those calls we were able to arrest a person who was intoxicated,’’ Mr Hill said.
