Kids chased and named
Police are hot on the trail of two juveniles who kicked over and smashed a sandwich board sign outside a takeaway in Kaitaia’s main street at around 4pm on Tuesday.
Two members of the public gave chase when they ran off, and challenged them in nearby Empire St, but police were unable to find them.
A member of the public was able to name them, however, and the inquiry was continuing yesterday.
A police spokesman said the boys had threatened the owner when he confronted them after they smashed his sign, but no other damage was done.
