Sus­pi­cious ute hang­ing around

Coastal News - - News -

— We would like to thank all mem­bers of the public who called us on 111 and Crime Stop­pers re­gard­ing a white ute sneak­ing around ru­ral prop­er­ties. Last Fri­day a white ute was seen go­ing into drive­ways on Went­worth Val­ley Rd, and again on farms around O¯ poutere and O¯ ne­m­ana over the week­end. Po­lice caught up with the ute and the out of town peo­ple in it.

They stated they were look­ing for scrap metal and old cars to buy for cash.

Please keep an eye out for this sort of be­hav­iour in the fu­ture and call us on 111. All were told to con­tact farm­ers or cus­tomers be­fore­hand, also ad­vice was given to stay away from Whanga­mata¯ . Let’s hope they take it and push off.
