Se­cu­rity re­minder fol­low­ing bur­glary

Waihi Leader - - News -

Waihi Po­lice are en­cour­ag­ing res­i­dents to be mind­ful of se­cu­rity fol­low­ing a re­cent bur­glary in the town.

Last Thurs­day night, a man was re­ported en­ter­ing a res­i­den­tial prop­erty at 9pm as the oc­cu­pants were asleep.

When they woke, the man fled through an open win­dow.

Po­lice con­ducted a scene ex­am­i­na­tion the next day and said they have iden­ti­fied strong lines of en­quiry.

De­tec­tive Se­nior Sergeant Stephen Am­bler says win­dows and doors need to be locked at night.

“This in­ci­dent is an im­por­tant re­minder for ev­ery­one to en­sure that, as the weather gets warmer, se­cu­rity re­mains front of mind and win­dows are se­cured at night,” he said.
