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!

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

!! Warning: Cattle almost shot on Wech Access Rd !!

Hi everyone

This is an email to alert you all to be vigilant as early this morning a man was seen about to shoot a cow in a paddock on Wech Access.

He was startled as he was lining up to take the shot so he fled with his partner in a light coloured hatchback car.

This happened around 3:30am. Please take care and alert the police or your neighbors of any dodgy activity. Try and get a number plate if possible.
