■ A rural prop­erty on Pour­erere Rd was bur­gled on Tues­day, June 5 while the owner was away for the day. Offenders have en­tered through a win­dow and stolen a large flat screen TV, and have also stolen meat from the freezer.

■ On June 2, a ute which had been parked on Mitchell St overnight was bro­ken in to. The ve­hi­cle is owned by a lo­cal builder and had a lot of ex­pen­sive equip­ment in the back un­der a locked canopy.

Prop­erty stolen in­cluded a yel­low/black De Walt drop saw (S/N: U/K); a bag of hand tools, a Paslode nail gun, a Mikida im­pact driver and bat­tery drill, socket set, skill saws and grinder, fin­ish­ing gun and bat­ter­ies.

This sort of equip­ment would only be owned by a le­git­i­mate builder, so if you know of any­one try­ing to sell these items or know who has them, please con­tact lo­cal po­lice or call CRIME STOP­PERS 0800 555 111.

■ On June 1 a shoplifter stole in ex­cess of $700 worth of items from the Am­cal Pharmacy. For­tu­nately the al­leged fe­male of­fender was caught on camera and has been iden­ti­fied. She is not a lo­cal res­i­dent and has been on a shoplift­ing spree from Palmer­ston North to Napier. She may have to pre­pare her­self for a few months of in­con­ve­nient liv­ing ar­range­ments.

■ A car that was stolen from Maraenui in Napier on May

30 was stopped by a po­lice pa­trol in Waipuku­rau on June 5 and the 31-year-old driver from Flaxmere was ar­rested.

■ At about 7pm on June 6 a minor ve­hi­cle col­li­sion oc­curred at the road works at the in­ter­sec­tion with Her­bert and Rus­sell Sts. Vis­i­bil­ity was poor and the traf­fic flow was steady for that time of night. Please be ex­tra vig­i­lant around road­works. Many out-of-town driv­ers are pass­ing through and are not fa­mil­iar with the de­tours in place. This all adds to the con­fu­sion, so ex­er­cise pa­tience please.
