A big puff of wind' is how Sergeant Aaron Fraser described Cyclone Lusi when he was asked how Police coped with the event.
A lot of debris was picked up from the road and a couple of minor crashes as a result of people driving too fast for the conditions on Saturday was what Police dealt with locally.
The Waihi Police, schools and community have had enough of groups of kids fighting and causing trouble. Sergeant Fraser said they will be coming down hard on those caught and they will be locking people up and charging them with fighting or disorder offences.
Anyone who sees groups of youths acting suspiciously is asked to contact the Police immediately.
Someone is still wandering around George Street trying windows and doors in the wee small hours. Keep an eye out at your place and on your neighbour's properties and report late night activity in the George Street area to the Police quickly.
Last Friday Police executed a search warrant in Clarke Street. Cars were broken into at Bowentown recently and two people were arrested at the property visited. One person faces drug offence charges and the other was arrested for receiving stolen property.'Hopefully we can slow down some of the cars being broken into,' Sergeant Fraser said.
The Waihi Police can be contacted on 07 863 8179. To remain anonymous dial 0800 555 111 and in an emergency phone 111 immediately.
