Be warned: a ‘good deal’ might cost plenty

South Waikato News - - SPORT - By GRAEME HILL

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.
