Taupo Po­lice weekly re­port

Taupo Times - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - TAUPO PO­LICE Eight bur­glar­ies:

Taupo Po­lice re­port May 23-29

There were three bur­glar­ies in Sin­ton Row.

One vic­tim re­turned from work af­ter leav­ing his house se­cure. He dis­cov­ered his front ranch slider was un­locked. When he en­tered his house he no­ticed that a box of beer and his i-phone, which were sit­ting on the kitchen bench, had been taken

Next door was also found to be burgled, with a back win­dow be­ing smashed. It is un­known if any­thing was taken.

Be­tween the re­ported times an­other prop­erty suf­fered an at­tempted break in. The house had been left locked, se­cured and alarmed. The alarm had not been ac­ti­vated.

The of­fender/s have at­tempted to gain en­try by try­ing to jemmy a rear fac­ing alu­minium door lead­ing the laun­dry room of the prop­erty. This has bro­ken the win­dow on the door. Ore­gon Drive: A vic­tim’s ve­hi­cle, that was parked on his prop­erty, has been bro­ken into, He states that he re­turned to the ve­hi­cle to find that some­one had stolen tools - there ap­pears to be no dam­age to the ve­hi­cle but he has found that one of his very back win­dows is hard to wind down now. Nil dis­tur­bance made to the house it­self and no at­tempt to steal the ve­hi­cle was made. De­bretts Ther­mal Re­sort: A man en­tered the hot springs area be­side the pools at the back of the re­sort and then he en­tered the garage. He then took tools from the back area and used them to get in­side the lock­ers by tear­ing the locks off with a crow­bar. The male is about 180cm, broad shoul­dered and heavy set. On fur­ther in­spec­tion, his legs are thin, so Po­lice say it’s pos­si­ble he is wear­ing many jack­ets. Rakanui Road:

A in­for­mant has found a front fence has been cut to gain en­try. Once in the yard they have en­tered an of­fice on site. There has been a messy search of the of­fice, un­sure what has been taken. Ar­row­smith Ave: Ta­matea Road: The vic­tim left his prop­erty locked and se­cure. Upon re­turn­ing, the vic­tim dis­cov­ered the house had been bro­ken into. The of­fender/s have man­aged to open the rear slid­ing door al­though there is no ob­vi­ous signs of dam­age.
