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

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.
