Recent Burglaries

Hi all

It appears that there were two shed burglaries overnight – one in Kaipara Flats, and one at Tauhoa, with motorbikes, chainsaw etc stolen. A great reminder to be vigilant about locking sheds, and also keeping an eye out for vehicles that don’t seem to fit. Police are happy if you ring and report a number plate, so don’t worry if you are being over cautious!

Ahuroa School Community Help Desperately needed.

Hi wonderful community,

Please can you help me out. We have had a spate of vandalism at the school. From bottles and nappies in the pool to concrete being poured on our multipurpose turf. Today we had some bottles broken in our driveway.

If you know who is responsible for this senseless damage, please let me know or better still let the police know.

It is pretty hard to keep our fabulous little school looking great at the best of times, let alone once we have vandals mucking around. Every time we need to spend time and money on this it takes something away from our lovely kids.

If you are driving past the school and notice anything untoward, please take some photos, or number plates  and send it through to me at

Thank you in advance for your help.

Kind regards

Michelle Nell

Puhoi burglary

My house on the hill just before J tolhopf Rd ,container and out sheds were robbed. The gate chain and container locks were cut as well as a main entrance dead bolt door smashed. It happened between Tues and 7am wed( Tues night) They used a vehicle “ ute or surf type” with large mud tyres and possibly had a trailer . They have taken a lot of personal stuff which they will possibly throw away as it will have no value to them as well as tools and valuable possessions etc . They backed down the side of the house and parked by the container as well as out by the road . If any one saw any vehicles looking suspicious or looked like they were moving house or loads of stuff , around Ahuroa rd through these times please contact me . They may of headed either to Puhoi or Ahuroa couldn’t tell.

Someone let our pet Ram out of his pen the day before and the steely boys may of given him the bash as he was covered in mud as if rolled around , I only hope Leroy broke their knee first. Leroy’s ok and back in Pen with treats.Regards

Those with lambs, beware.

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. 


Suspicious car at Martin Access Road

Hi all

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.
