Over the week the number of burglaries has been reasonably low however lately we have been having a rural burglary problem. On Sunday four people were arrested in Putaruru during a daytime burglary at a rural address. These four people were held in custody and appeared in court on Monday. All property was recovered so it was good work from our Putaruru staff for catching them and from the people who phoned it in. There is a tendency for people in rural communities to leave their properties insecure if they pop out during the day. Remember to be more security conscious if you do by locking doors, closing windows, and putting things outside away.
