Police Snippets

 

Houses burgled
A number of burglaries have occurred over the last two weeks in Mangawhai with three houses broken into and a variety of items stolen.

Three remote helicopters and a bicycle rack which fits on the back of a vehicle were taken from a home on Alamar Crescent.

On Ellen Street, Mangawhai Heads, a garage was broken into and three fishing rods, custom-built by the owner, were taken along with two reels and a tackle box.

A home on Tara Road was also invaded on the weekend of July 8-11, with thieves pocketing children’s savings from their money boxes that were going towards an overseas trip. A Warehouse Veon televison was also taken.

Mangawhai Constable Dale Wewege says the Alamar and Ellen Street burglaries are definitely linked but the Tara road theft appears to be unrelated. Investigations are continuing.

Police urge there are suspect characters about so keep doors locked and report suspicious behaviour and crime through the Crime Reporting line, (09) 477 5000.

Driver warnings
A reminder to drivers to slow down on roads especially around schools and areas where children gather like Mangawhai’s Activity Zone and school.

“Last thing we all want is a child hit by a speeding car,” Sergeant Geoff Medland says. “A car going at 70kmh will cause serious damage or death so we need the community’s help in slowing down.”

Constable Dale Wewage also says there are still a lot of people not wearing seatbelts and failing to fully stop at Stop signs. “You have been warned.”
