Crime doesn’t stop in paradise
It never seems to slow down in paradise.
Police have been kept very busy with nasty gang problems, family harm and organised crime.
Crimestoppers has been going flat out with info on these. Keep it up as a community and we will get rid of all these unwanted critters.
Police were called to a disorder incident on Port Rd, Sunday that led them to search a vehicle and dwelling, leading to the discovery of drugs, drug paraphernalia and a restricted weapon.
As a result a male has been charged and will appear in the Waihi District Court for this offending.
The surge of methamphetamine and cannabis is again putting our community at risk. For all those with kids, do we really need to expose them to this harm?
Police are ready to swing the hammer on all drug dealers, including all the socalled horticulturists, so wave to the chopper this summer.
Drugs are a plague on our town, tearing families apart and destroying locals lives. The people dealing to our locals are motivated by greed and selfishness, caring nothing for the pain and suffering they cause.
If you have problems or use drugs, especially meth, you may think you’re in control. But it will own you and eventually ruin you and hurt your loved ones. I have personally seen this gradual destruction in close friends, and hundreds of sad people I have met in my job. Please seek help. You are being used to make selfish scum rich.
Whangamatā Police ask that as a community we work together to drive the dealers out. If you have any information please call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, or Police on 111. Thank you — Sgt Beisly
Wear helmets please. Police have dished out too many warning and infringements lately, and heading into summer will be cracking down on it, plus we have had a number of complaints of cyclists using the footpath in town.
Please be considerate of others and stick to the roads.
Please watch out for highvolume dishonesty crime.
Police recently arrested a little thief who started in Whitianga and was busted in Whangamatā.
Roll on the good weather.
