Po­lice joined the an­nual Emer­gency Ser­vices Food Drive last night col­lect­ing for the lo­cal food­bank. Hope­fully this will make a dif­fer­ence to those less for­tu­nate this Christ­mas, said Sergeant Steve Hind­marsh.

Dis­qual­i­fied driver snapped

On Mon­day Con­sta­ble Bruce Mor­risey ar­rested an 18-year-old Katikati male for driv­ing while dis­qual­i­fied af­ter CCTV footage cap­tured him in the grounds of Katikati Col­lege, where a dump­ster was set alight.

The small fire in the rub­bish was put out by other con­cerned stu­dents. Fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tions are con­tin­u­ing. This in­ci­dent hap­pened dur­ing the week­end.

Sports club break-in

Overnight on Satur­day the Kahia Sports Club on Rerea­tukahia Road was bro­ken into and about $400 worth of spir­its stolen.

Pen­sioner tar­geted

A pen­sioner re­sid­ing at the Heron Cres­cent flats has re­ported that be­tween 11am and mid­day on Novem­ber 30 some­one has en­tered his open flat and taken a sig­nif­i­cant amount of cash from his wal­let while he was sit­ting out­side the front of his unit. Sergeant Hind­marsh said this is a mean-spir­ited crime to say the least when a pen­sioner is tar­geted in this man­ner.

Tools stolen

An ad­dress on Kauri Point Road was bro­ken into dur­ing day­light hours on Novem­ber 28.

Keys to a con­tainer out­side were lo­cated and tools were stolen from the con­tainer.

Po­lice are keen to hear from any­one who no­ticed any sus­pi­cious ve­hi­cles or peo­ple in the area at the time.

Graf­fiti on den

The Scout Den on Caris­brooke Street has been heav­ily graf­fi­tied be­tween Novem­ber 29 and 30 with obscene pic­tures and words with a spray can.

It would ap­pear to be the work of im­ma­ture of­fend­ers.

If any­one knows any­thing about this please con­tact us.

Graf­fiti was also re­ported on a fence in Rerea­tukahia Road.

Lost cur­rency

A quan­tity of NZ money and some Amer­i­can money was found re­cently in Count­down su­per­mar­ket.

If you think this is yours and know the amount you lost then call into the Katikati sta­tion and see us.
