Marton Police appeal for information after burglary

Marton Police appeal for information after burglary

Marton Police are appealing for help from the public after a burglary at a local mechanical business that occurred on Thursday 28 August, 2014.

"The burglary occurred at Robbie's Mechanical Services on Wellington Road, Marton, and witnesses have informed us that sometime between 11pm and midnight a dark grey early 1980s 4x4 was seen parked on vacant land near the rear of the workshop," says Constable Matt Davis.

A large container at the rear of Robbie's workshop was entered and a quantity of hire equipment stolen. This included chainsaws, concrete cutters, jack hammers, and other specialised hire equipment.

"We understand the vehicle had a horse float or enclosed furniture float attached and it may have been coloured either brown or red."

It is believed that two people were seen with this vehicle. Officers are in the process of analysing CCTV footage from the business.

"Police are urgently seeking information in regards to this vehicle and in particular the horse/furniture float which could have been hired or stolen from the Whanganui, Horowhenua, or Palmerston North areas. Some of this equipment will be hard to move because of its specialised nature.

"We want to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the burglary or has any
information about it.

If you have been offered hardware equipment at a discount rate recently we encourage you to contact the Police as it may be linked to the burglary."

"If you have noticed any suspicious vehicles or activity around your community call 111 at the time."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Constable Davis on (06) 327 4296.

Alternatively information can be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Professor Ian Shirley: The Budget That Failed Auckland

The 2016 budget offered Auckland nothing in the way of vision or hope and it continued the National Government’s threats against the Auckland Council. Threatening the Council with over-riding its democratic processes if it fails to release land for housing is a bullying tactic aimed at diverting attention away from the fundamental problems with housing in the region.

Shortly after the embargo lifted at 2pm news organisations started filing reports claiming that health, and to a lesser extent housing and education, were the ‘big winners’ out of the Budget.

Max Rashbrooke On The 2016 Budget

The best label for this year’s announcement by Bill English might be the ‘Bare Minimum Budget’. It does the bare minimum to defuse potential political damage in a range of areas – homelessness and health are prime among them – but almost nothing to address the country’s most deep-rooted, systemic social problems. Indeed the Budget hints that these problems may get worse. More>>
