It was a pleasure to welcome Constable Harley North into the Gold FM studio this morning to update the Gold FM Police Report.
Constable North said police had a good result investigating last weeks Haszard Street burglary as the person responsible was apprehended.
A handbag was stolen from the Habby Shop last Wednesday and police recovered the handbag in good condition and are taking action against those involved in the theft.
A Bank Street property was entered on Saturday. The owner's bag, cellphone and wallet were stolen and Constable North reminded people to make it harder for opportunistic thieves by following some simple tips.
Even though occupiers may be in their garden it is still a good idea to lock windows and doors.
A yard in Connell Street was broken into in the early hours of Sunday morning and metal shelving for door frames was taken after a container on a truck was opened. It's thought to be a scrap metal theft, which is quite common in the Waihi area. Investigations are ongoing.
Youths have been congregating in a secure yard behind 100% and Constable North said the yard is private property and the youths are committing a crime, both by entering the yard, and consuming liquor when there is a liquor ban in place.
Local police have an ongoing problem with young people going missing from their homes. Valuable police resources are being used trying to locate kids who leave their homes without letting their parents and caregivers know where they will be.
The Waihi Police can be contacted on 07 863 8179. The anonymous line to report crime is 0800 555 111 and in an emergency police urge people to dial 111 immediately.
