Sergeant Dave Litton reported in on Police happenings over the past week this morning.

Houses in the Old Tauranga Road area are being targeted and three burglaries have happened recently. The Waihi Golf Course was also broken into last week. The advice from the Police is to keep your eyes and ears open and report anything suspicious or out of place. It's a good idea to get a description and license plate of any strange vehicles.

Using a cellphone while driving will get you in hot water if you're caught, and the message from the Police is DON'T! They will be keeping an eye out and anyone caught faces an automatic fine.

Dickie's Flat becomes a popular 'party' spot at this time of year and Sergeant Litton said the area is not a 'party zone' and people will be moved on if they are disturbing others or causing a problem. People need to be mindful of other campers and the area, he said.

A passenger in a car that crashed on Awaiti Road near Paeroa died over the weekend and Sergeant Litton said unfortunately a 25 year old lost control of his vehicle; most likely due to speed, and as a result his passenger was killed.

He also reminded parents to be aware of teenagers and alcohol. The two can be a volatile mix and parents and friends can play a role in promoting responsibility and consequences.

The Waihi Police can be contacted on 07 863 8179. If it's an emergency, don't hesitate; phone 111 and for anonymous calls phone 0800 555 111.
