Summer hitting Whangamata
What a cracker Labour Weekend, town was buzzing in a great way.
Good to see a lot of families enjoying what we have to offer as a community, so keep it up.
Always a few little CRITTERS hanging around though, which keep the local cops busy.
We are keeping the pressure on the local druggies, so please keep all the Crimestoppers info rolling in on 0800 555111.
Police will also be on high visible patrols in the local bush, targeting cannabis growers and poachers — oh and wave for the cameras.
Again we have issued a number of infringement notices for bad driving and speed, we have had a shocking road toll over Labour weekend, so please do your bit and SLOW down.
Police will continue to target bad drivers so please ensure , seat belts are worn and your vehicle is up to date.
The liquor ban has been back in force over this weekend and so far Police haven’t had any major issues but sad to see people wrecking it for others.
Police dealt with some youths who thought it was a good idea to throw bottles over the fence into the local campground.
What dangerous behaviour and it was a miracle that no one was injured, so it seems there are still a few NE’ER DO WELLS out and about.
The best beach in New Zealand was looking mint on the weekend, just a reminder to some to please ensure you take all your rubbish off the beach so it can be enjoyed by all.
We are keen to get the same award in 2019.
Staff at the local information centre would like to thank the good Samaritan who handed in a lost wallet on Monday.
The wallet contained CASH and the very happy owner came in and got it, with all the cash intact. Great to see honest hard-working people out there, again this shows the true value of a fantastic community.
Police also would like to thank this person, who we believed to be a local Whangamata resident. Nice job Chief.
