Eastern Police Locate Stolen Vape Equipment And Stolen Car

Thanks to some excellent work by Hastings and Napier Police, two teens were
found with a stolen Mazda Demio on Sunday on Coventry Avenue, Napier.

Inside the car was vape equipment which had come from the burglary of shop in
Napier earlier that morning.

A 17-year-old youth from Napier was arrested and remanded into the custody of
Oranga Tamarikipending a youth court appearance. A 13-year-old youth was
returned home for Police youth services follow-up action.

They are facing a range of charges including burglary and unlawful taking of
motor vehicles.

Another 17-year-old youth is still outstanding and Police are actively
looking for them.

“This was great work from our staff to get these burglaries solved and the
alleged offenders brought to justice,” Inspector Marty James Area Manager
Prevention Hawkes Bay says.

“It’s a win for us and for the community to be able to apprehend these
people and put a stop to this offending, especially when nobody is supposed
to be out and about in level four.”

“Today’s arrest demonstrates Police’s commitment to holding those
responsible for property crime to account, but we continue to ask for the
public’s help.

“Please be vigilant with the security of your home, business and vehicles,
and if you see anything suspicious, contact 111 immediately.”

Police advise commercial premises to install CCTV cameras and bollards in
front of main entrances, if possible.
