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.’’
