Arrest Made In Relation To Vehicle Break-ins, Cromwell

Police investigating car break-ins in the Cromwell area recently have made an arrest.

Incidents recently had been reported in the Cromwell Gorge and Bannockburn Road areas.

In relation to these incidents a 44-year-old man has been charged with a number of counts of theft from a vehicle.

He was also charged in relation to three burglaries - one in Oamaru, and two in Central Otago.

Police expect that further charges in relation to other vehicle break-ins across the Central Otago region are likely.

Detective Sergeant Derek Shaw of Central Otago CIB says he is pleased an arrest has been made.

“We know incidents of this type are upsetting and frustrating for victims, and we are glad to have been able to put someone before the courts to be held accountable.

“Police would like to thank those members of the public who called and provided information following our appeal last week.”

The man appeared in court today and is due to reappear in Alexandra District Court on 3 November.

As the matter is now before the courts, Police will not be commenting further.

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
