High-Risk Offender Believed To Be On The Run - North Island


Title: High-Risk Offender Believed To Be On The Run Up The North Island

Wellington Police are appealing for any sightings of a convicted and high-risk child sex offender.

Multiple warrants to arrest have been issued for 47-year-old Darren Albert JOLLY for alleged breaches of an extended supervision order which included 24/7 electronic monitoring.

On Wednesday last week he fled his Wellington address heading north. Police believe he has taken a vehicle from a Kapiti car dealership later that day.

Police are appealing for any sightings of this vehicle which is a blue Honda Civic sedan registration AYT134.

The public are warned that JOLLY has a history of failing to stop and driving dangerously at extremely high speeds to avoid being arrested.

Police believe he has been in Taupo and Hamilton and will be heading for Auckland. He has known connections in Wellington, Taranaki, Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Auckland.

Anyone with any information about JOLLY and his whereabouts should phone Wellington Police on (04) 381 2000 or provide information anonymously through Crimestoppers by phoning 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>>
