Police Continue Search for Dangerous Male


Police searching for 25 year-old Rory Smyth are renewing appeals for information about his whereabouts. Smyth is wanted on warrants for failing to appear in the Auckland District Court on several charges, including the unlawful possession of shotgun ammunition.

Police inquiries over the past few days have identified him as a person of interest in relation to the October 22 aggravated robbery of Miss Q’s, a nightclub in Panmure, during which tens of thousands of dollars was taken at gunpoint by a man in possession of a shotgun.

Smyth is known to be armed and Police consider him to be dangerous and not to be approached.

He is Caucasian, of slim build and stands 180cm tall. He has a distinctive tattoo - "Bad boy" - on the right hand side of his neck [refer to pics on Police website and Facebook].

He may be travelling with or, in the company of, 22 year-old Shannelle Ward, formerly of New Windsor. She is also Caucasian, of thin build and stands 167cm tall [pics also on website/FB].

Anyone with information about where either or both these people are should contact Acting Detective Sergeant Matthew Lynch on 027 443 8245 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
