Po­lice fo­cus­ing on drugs

Coastal News - - News -

Po­lice have been flat out deal­ing with in­ves­ti­gat­ing drug of­fences and again Crime Stop­pers is prov­ing a great tool.

I like to call this year’s cam­paign NO GROW BRO.


It seems some low life has been do­ing the rounds among ru­ral prop­er­ties. A graz­ing ram and two ewes were stolen from an ad­dress near the Old Pup Rd.

Po­lice have a num­ber of sus­pects, but ask again if any­one has any info please call on either 111 or Crime Stop­pers 0800 555 111.

To all of the ru­ral com­mu­nity, please keep a keen eye out and look out for each other. It seems some scum­bags are tar­get­ing that com­mu­nity.


Great to see out lo­cal Com­mu­nity Pa­trol out on the week­end, loaded with a bar­be­cue and ex­perts who were se­cur­ing num­ber plates on ve­hi­cles

Please give them a wave and sup­port them, be­cause when are you sleep­ing, they are out and about us­ing their own time to help pro­tect this com­mu­nity.

Labour Week­end kicked off the busy time for us here. So far so good, how­ever we are get­ting a num­ber of re­ports of petty thefts and dis­hon­esty of­fend­ing.

Po­lice are keen to kick these of­fend­ers out of town, be­cause as a com­mu­nity this will not be tol­er­ated.


As we head into a busy sum­mer, here are a few house­keep­ing rules that will make your sum­mer a lot more pleas­ant.

■ Have your ve­hi­cle up to date with reg­is­tra­tion and war­rant of fit­ness.

■ Leaner and re­stricted driv­ers — stick to your li­cence con­di­tions.

■ Adults and youth — wear a hel­met while on a bike.

■ Slow down and stick to the 50km speed limit.

■ Plan be­fore you party — as work drinks start please ar­range a sober driver.

■ Make sure your gas bot­tle for the bar­be­cue is full and ready for ac­tion. Roll on sum­mer — happy days are here.
