Pu­taruru po­lice had some ‘‘good catches’’ in re­gards to bur­glar­ies last week, ac­cord­ing to se­nior sergeant Ja­son Shailer.

On Thurs­day night three peo­ple were ar­rested for al­legedly at­tempt­ing to break into a petrol sta­tion in Pu­taruru and they will all be ap­pear­ing in court this week.

Two Te Awa­mutu peo­ple were also ar­rested for al­legedly break­ing into a Pu­taruru build­ing sup­ply business.

Sub­se­quent en­quiries re­vealed stolen prop­erty from around New Zealand at their house.

Driv­ers were in trou­ble with Toko­roa po­lice for all sorts of rea­sons last week.

Se­nior sergeant Graeme Hill said three peo­ple had been dealt with for drink driv­ing and two for dan­ger­ous driv­ing in­clud­ing speed­ing and ‘‘ show­ing off’’ be­hav­iour.

‘‘Ba­si­cally at this time of year with kids on the road and out of school it poses as a haz­ard.’’

Hill said 10 peo­ple were caught out due to is­sues with their li­cence and the majority of those had an ex­pired li­cence.

‘‘They’ve got to be con­stantly vig­i­lant when up­dat­ing their li­cence, its not go­ing to be fun left on the side of the road with your fam­ily and be­ing for­bid­den to drive.’’
