Rise in ve­hi­cle break-ins

South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place - SE­NIOR SERGEANT JA­SON HENDERSON Ve­hi­cle break-ins Drink driv­ing

There were 24 fam­ily harm in­ci­dents for the week from which there were five ar­rests for as­saults. Most of these were for male as­saults fe­male.

There were two bur­glar­ies for the week. For one of these a 26 year old Taupo male was ar­rested and charged for at­tempt­ing to steal petrol from a rural prop­erty close to Toko­roa’s town bound­ary.

He was also charged for fur­ther of­fences in Taupo.

We had seven ve­hi­cles bro­ken into dur­ing the early hours of Wed­nes­day morn­ing. All of these took place in the Man­ner­ing and Com­merce St area.

One ve­hi­cle was also stolen but later re­cov­ered in Ro­torua.

We are un­sure of the rea­son­ing be­hind why so many ve­hi­cles were be­ing bro­ken into as noth­ing of note was taken so whether they were sim­ply look­ing for a ve­hi­cle to steal or for valu­able items we just don’t know. All ve­hi­cles were se­cure when they were bro­ken into.

Two lo­cal peo­ple were pro­cessed for drink driv­ing dur­ing the week. Both blew ex­tremely high with one blow­ing over 900 mi­cro­grams of al­co­hol per litre of breath. The le­gal limit is 250mcg.
