Country petrol thefts
Tokoroa Acting Senior Sergeant Police are asking the rural community to be vigilant and call 111 to report any suspicious activity on their properties after a spate of rural thefts of petrol in the Mossop Rd and Old Taupo Rd areas.
Seven people were arrested for weapons and unlawful assembly charges as a result of the gang-related brawl that took place in Tainui St last month.
Inquiries are continuing with more arrests likely.
Police are confident that South Waikato drivers may be getting the message with no drink-drivers arrested in the past week and no serious incidents on the roads.
A back to school campaign has been launched by Tokoroa Police targeting dropoff and pickup times for South Waikato children who started fully back at school today.
Emphasis is on the safety of the children and reducing the likelihood of any trafficrelated incidents around the schools. Police are asking parents to support them by being responsible and avoiding risks during busy dropoff and pickup times.
