Taupo Po­lice: Weekly re­port


Syn­thetic Cannabis

Po­lice are fo­cused on hold­ing those who man­u­fac­ture or sup­ply this drug to ac­count. Po­lice have al­ready seized a sig­nif­i­cant amount of syn­thetic cannabis in both Auck­land and Can­ter­bury and a num­ber of ar­rests have been made.

Po­lice are work­ing closely with other gov­ern­ment agen­cies such as District Health Boards, Min­istry of Health, Coro­nial Ser­vices and St John, to en­sure that the pub­lic is well in­formed about the dan­gers of tak­ing this drug.

Like with any drug, Po­lice can­not solve this prob­lem alone and we need our com­mu­nity to tell us who is in­fect­ing our com­mu­nity with this drug. Please con­tact Po­lice di­rectly or via Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111. Bur­glar­ies There have been five bur­glar­ies in the last week. Three in­volved sheds or garages and one was fire­wood be­ing stolen. Please en­sure your out­build­ings are se­cured with good locks. Use sen­sor light­ing as a de­ter­rent and en­sure that your tools are marked to as­sist po­lice with fu­ture iden­ti­fi­ca­tion when they are re­cov­ered.Two STIHL chain­saws and an Alaskan chain­saw mill were taken - please keep an eye out for these nearly new items be­ing sold on.
