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
Enquiries are ongoing and further charges are likely.
This type of
offending has far-reaching consequences for our local
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
you are urged to contact Police on 111 if it’s happening now, or 105 if
it’s after the fact.
