South Waikato News - - Your Place, Your Paper -

In re­cent weeks the South Waikato and sur­round­ing ar­eas have seen a num­ber of of­fences in the ru­ral ar­eas around towns. Thieves are tar­get­ing fuel, gates, firearms and farm ve­hi­cles such as mo­tor­bikes and utes.

Se­nior sergeant Hen­der­son said the ru­ral com­mu­nity needs to check firearms and am­mu­ni­tion are locked away to pre­vent them be­ing stolen.

‘‘It is not suf­fi­cient to hide th­ese types of items in hope they will not be lo­cated. In support of our ru­ral com­mu­nity Po­lice will be pa­trolling more of­ten.’’

Any­one want­ing in­for­ma­tion and tips on farm se­cu­rity can con­tact the lo­cal Po­lice Sta­tion.
