Police are appealing for information on the whereabouts of 32 year old Angela Pidduck. Ms Pidduck has three warrants for her arrest and is also wanted to arrest regarding further offending throughout the upper North Island.

Ms Pidduck is alleged to target rental car agencies and produce false details to rent vehicles. She is thought to obtain stolen identification and credit card details through fraud and theft and is alleged to have been involved in several shoplifting incidents throughout Auckland and the North Island.

“It is likely that Ms Pidduck will continue to offend before she is apprehended by Police,” says Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Richard O’Connor of Counties Manukau West CIB. “Any information that could lead to her arrest will be greatly appreciated by Police.”

Ms Pidduck is identifiable due to a large scar on the right side of her face that runs down her cheek to the corner of her mouth. Anyone who sees someone matching this description should contact Police, even if she produces identification of a different name.

“We particularly ask rental car agencies to be aware of Ms Pidduck and her specific type of offending,” says Acting Detective Senior Sergeant O’Connor. “She has been known to travel to Cambridge, Tauranga and Whangarei to offend and it is imperative that we catch up with her as soon as possible.”

Anyone who knows of Angela Pidduck’s whereabouts is urged tp contact Police immediately on 111 or contact Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Richard O’Connor on 09 213 9444. Information can be provided anonymously to the organisation Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
