Bush Telegraph - - Property Market - By SE­NIOR SERGEANT JYMAHL GLASSEY

Af­ter a cou­ple of months break from our weekly up­date we are now back to pro­vide some in­for­ma­tion about polic­ing ac­tiv­i­ties in the Tararua.

There were three re­ported bur­glar­ies in Dan­nevirke in the past week. On Satur­day, June 30 a com­mer­cial premises was en­tered and a small amount of money taken from the till. On an­other oc­ca­sion a man has en­tered some flats on Swin­burn St and be­friended the oc­cu­pant be­fore steal­ing some of their prop­erty. Po­lice ad­vise the pub­lic to be wary of peo­ple who knock at your door. Of­ten crim­i­nals will claim to be at an ad­dress for a le­git­i­mate pur­pose and the oc­cu­pants are con­vinced by the per­son’s story. De­spite what they may say they are there for, po­lice ad­vise against en­gag­ing in con­ver­sa­tion with them or let­ting them into your ad­dress un­less you know them per­son­ally.

One bur­glary in­volved the steal­ing of about 10 firearms from a com­mer­cial prop­erty in High St, Dan­nevirke.

Please we are very ea­ger to speak to any­one who may have in­for­ma­tion as to who has th­ese firearms.

Dur­ing the last week there has been seven do­mes­tic vi­o­lence re­lated in­ci­dents in Dan­nevirke.

On Sun­day, July 1 Pahiatua and Woodville po­lice ar­rested and charged a male for four prop­erty-re­lated crimes through­out the Tararua area in the week prior. The man was lo­cated by po­lice at an ad­dress in Woodville and has now been re­manded in cus­tody

Pahiatua po­lice at­tended six fam­ily vi­o­lence re­lated in­ci­dents in the past week.
