KEEP FIREARMS SECURE
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.
