Arrests Made Following Dishonesty Offending, Tairāwhiti

Detective Sergeant Brent Griffiths, Tairāwhiti Police:

Police have charged two men following multiple commercial burglaries in the
city last month.

Police yesterday executed search warrants at two residential addresses
resulting in the recovery of some of the stolen items, including property
from a commercial burglary in August.

Two men, aged 40 and 44, remain in Police custody and are due to appear in
the Gisborne District Court this afternoon on burglary and other
dishonesty-related charges.

Enquiries are ongoing and further charges are likely.

This type of offending has far-reaching consequences for our local business
owners and third-party victims, causing significant operational disruption
and fiscal loss. The offending will not be tolerated, and Police are
committed to holding these offenders to account.

If you are a victim of offending, or if you witness any suspicious behaviour,
you are urged to contact Police on 111 if it’s happening now, or 105 if
it’s after the fact.

With mojo in hand, New Zealanders will once more become a nation of over-achievers, blessed with the feisty Kiwi can-do spirit of yore.

But here’s the thing. According to Luxon, we’re naturally bold, inventive and self-reliant. Yet according to him, we’re also “wet, whiny and inward-looking”...
