Be warned: a ‘good deal’ might cost plenty
Tokoroa senior sergeant There has been some good work done to arrest two men from Gisborne and further work continues with a large amount of stolen property being sold within Tokoroa.
Some people have taken exception to the fact police will look to prosecute those who are found in possession of stolen property, asking why they are punished for getting a good deal. I will simply say this: when was the last time you got a legitimate deal buying 50-inch televisions, laptop computers and PS3 gaming bundles from a 16, 17 and 30-year-old dressed in gang-affiliated clothing selling them from the boot of a car? Hence the police plea for those who have purchased property to come forward. Police have also seized a items believed to be stolen.
These items include: GPS unit; AMP reader; 250GB hard drive; camera; various USB memory sticks; webcam; Huawei cell phone; Samsung cell phone; mobile WIFI stick; charging unit; MP3 Player; silver watches (mens); tool boxes containing numerous tools; 32- inch flat screen TV and a 50-inch flat screen TV.
To claim the items you must give a detailed description or provide proof of ownership.
