We are getting a number if theft complaints coming in. Most recently, boat thefts are on the up. Tackle and fuel are being targeted.
To all those who get pipi and kaimoana
Please stick to the catch limits, fisheries officers are out and about. Don’t risk being caught out, as on-the-spot $250 fines will be issued and boats, vehicles and dive gear could all be seized.
Police seized a large number of cannabis plants and an amount of dried cannabis ready to hit the street and cause more harm in our town. All involved were arrested and charged with drug offences. Family Harm.

On the brighter side, daylight saving has arrived so let the good times roll.
