Firearms Burglary - Bucklands Beach

Firearms Burglary - Bucklands Beach

On Thursday 12 June a private residence in Waller Avenue, Bucklands Beach was burgled between 9am – 5pm.

During the incident a large number of firearms and 5,000 rounds of shotgun ammunition were taken.

Firearms taken include:

"Caesar Guerini" (brand)

1 x Forum 12 guage field gun

1 x Forum 12 guage sporter impact

1 x Elipse Evo 20 guage field gun and another 28 guage barrel

4 x semi automatic shotguns

"Browning" (brand)

2 x 12 guage, 2 shot semi automatic (1966)

1 x Berretta .22 rifle semi automatic (1966)

1 x Browning 20 guage semi automatic 5 shot shotgun

1 x Remington 30/30 lever action collectors gun

1 x Remington 1187 Camo 12 guage semi automatic shotgun

1 x Parkerdale Safari 30-06 rifle

Initial indications are that the firearms owner had complied with appropriate storage and security measures.

It is believed the suspects travelled to the address in a white truck and entered the house through the rear ranch slider. The suspects left behind a crow-bar and trolley jack. A number plate, EAL626, was located at the top of the driveway appearing to have been ripped off a vehicle. This plate was cancelled on 28 December 2013.

“The investigation is still in its early stages however Counties Manukau Police are treating this incident as a priority” says Detective Inspector Dave Lynch.

Anyone who has information relating to this incident can call Detective Senior Sergeant Darrell Harpur on 09 261 1300 or alternatively information can be provided anonymously to the organisation Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Gordon Campbell:
On National’s Electorate Deals

For all the talk yesterday from Prime Minister John Key about National being transparent about its electorate deals in Epsom and Ohariu, that transparency is entirely front-loaded.

Yes, we know a lot about how Act and United Future are going to get into Parliament, but we know nothing at all about the policy concessions lying in wait in their coalition agreements afterwards.

The rorting of MMP is not so much in the manner by which these sham parties get into Parliament – it is in the secretive way their pet policies are foisted on the electorate once they’re there. More>>
