Can you please email out to all the rural street contacts to keep a look out for a red older style single cab ute.
Two males went to a dairy farm in Helensville asking for work on Sunday morning 17th September.If anyone has seen this ute and these males, in similar circumstances email me with details.
If this vehicle or the males, come to your farm asking for work please obtain the registration number plate of the ute and descriptions of the two males.
Could be perfectly legitimate, but I would like to let everyone know just in case it’s not.

Hey farmers,land owners in Kaukapakapa, surrounding areas
We live in Kaukapakapa, Stoney creek road. My neighbour and I have roughly 50/60 sheep, lambs between properties.Sometime Friday 12th or Saturday 13th August, some prick or pricks took lambs from our paddock which is near roadside. We were left with clean cut lamb heads.We also found lamb with left side of face torn off, but this looks 3 or 4 days old, so I’m unsure if this is connected. Concerning for me is they must have had a good look sometime,scoping the paddock as its very hilly,very wet, with gorse, blackberry not far from house and being a 5 acre paddock, you would need to know where you are going. One lamb had been bottle feed so sad for my kids to see just its head.
So keep an eye on neightbouring properties, been a Kaukapaian for long time, Im telling myself prick or pricks surely can’t live round here, but they new what they were doing for sure. If its you and you read this, come and see me we just chat,if you are hard up for cash, i will give you a whole sheep, i even get it butchered for you but you need to come and see me. Brandon
There have been a few sightings of suspicious activity involving a dark sedan scoping out lambs in a paddock on Martin Access Rd, it’s potentially related.
So, please keep your eyes open and alert the police to any suspicious behavior you might see, then drop us a note so we can warn the neighborhood support groups.
Thanks. Stay safe.
At about 00.30 this morning the dogs started to bark at a car that stopped next to our sheep paddock. The vehicle’s lights were off and I lightened them up with the spotlight after which they quickly started the car and sped off.
I couldn’t make out any number plate or make of car but it was a dark coloured sedan.
Be vigilant for these people trying to steal our sheep.

I would like to notify people living on Ahuroa Valley Road to be vigilant regarding any strange activities. We have had 3 unusual events first a car door found wide open on Saturday evening in our drive, second an open back porch door Sunday, and this morning we found a ripped wire for our electronic gate lock that happened Sunday evening. The police have been notified and will be taking fingerprints.
