Suspicious Incident at Service Station

There have been media reports regarding an incident at the BP Wylies Service Station on Maunu Road where a man tried to get into a car parked on the forecourt.

Media reports stated that a woman who was in the passenger seat of the car said a man had forced his way into the driver's seat (the driver had gone to pay for fuel) and began searching for the keys in the ignition and that he "had is bum in the seat and tried to shut the door.."

Police had not received a complaint regarding this incident, but due to the serious nature of the allegation contacted the service station and viewed the CCTV footage.

The footage shows a man in a hooded red jacket walking up to the car, opening the door, reaching in and then taking off. The man doesn't appear to be forcing his way on to the driver's seat.

Whangärei Area Prevention Manager Senior Sergeant Cliff Metcalfe says, however, he man appears to be committing an offence of unlawfully interfering with a motor vehicle and police would like to hear from the female victim who was seated in the car or anyone has any information relating the incident.

Anyone with information can contact Whangärei Police on 09 430 4500 or if they wish to remain anonymous can contact the Crimestoppers organisation 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>>
