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

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.
