Bur­glars back on the job

Again we are see­ing a ma­jor in­crease in bur­glar­ies in the com­mu­nity.

Boats and va­cant houses are get­ting tar­geted in the eastern part of town. Thanks to all who helped iden­tify a sus­pi­cious male on a push bike last week.

He has been lo­cated and warned. Call us ei­ther on 111 or Crime stop­pers 0800 555 111 , lets as a com­mu­nity tackle this is­sue

Pre­ven­tion ad­vise

Se­cure your prop­erty (LOCK IT).

In­stall a sen­sor light and or alarm.

Don’t make your prop­erty invit­ing. Don’t leave bikes or valu­ables out­side in full view

Tell your neigh­bours if you go away. Look out for each other.

Cannabis and dam­age

Cannabis grow­ers are get­ting ready and so are we.

Shame to see a bit of wil­ful dam­age in our town. Thanks to all who call us and came in to the sta­tion con­cerned about this. Road signs were moved and bro­ken by of­fend­ers on Waihi-whanga­mata¯ Road after a party last week. po­lice are keen to hear from any­one with info.

If you have re­cently lost your wal­let, come and see us. It was found right next to a dam­aged road sign on Port Rd.

If it’s not your prop­erty leave it alone. Three fe­males were seen drunk and wan­der­ing around a prop­erty on Ran­gi­tuia St where a nerf gun and bul­lets were taken from a drive­way Po­lice would like to speak with some youths who last week­end poured a tin of paint on a ve­hi­cle caus­ing ex­ten­sive dam­age, if you saw any­thing un­usual on Chartwell Ave last week­end then call us.


Learner / Re­stricted li­cence hold­ers — stick to your li­cence con­di­tions.

Drink driv­ers watch out — a few have been snagged lately. I still find it hard to un­der­stand why peo­ple still get caught when it’s just as easy to walk.

Po­lice have worked hard in re­cent months in re­duc­ing the amount of fam­ily harm. This is al­ways a hard task but in re­cent weeks we have put a nasty man in prison for the fore­see­able fu­ture.

We have been work­ing with the area school after re­ceiv­ing a num­ber of com­plaints about park­ing by par­ents pick­ing up the kids.

The yel­low lines panted near the curb mean no park­ing, so please don’t park over them.

Also to those who have been block­ing Blake Court Mo­tel’s drive­way, don’t

There’s plenty of room for ev­ery­one to park and the yel­low lines are there for ev­ery­one’s safety so let’s make sure the kids get home safe.

We will con­tinue de­liv­er­ing top ser­vice to our com­mu­nity, al­ways try­ing hard to keep all the un­de­sir­ables out but we also need your help, so we look for­ward to hear­ing from you — to­gether we can make a dif­fer­ence.

Sum­mer and day­light sav­ing not far off , happy days, bar­be­cue and boats are wait­ing.
