Six In The Mix Proves An Easy Fix For Police

Police have arrested half a dozen people after being alerted to a stolen
vehicle travelling through Highbrook in the early hours.

At around 3.25am, Police became aware of the stolen vehicle driving along
Great South Road.

Acting Inspector Steve Albrey, Relieving Area Prevention Manager, says the
Police Eagle helicopter quickly gained observations on the vehicle while a
patrol unit positioned themselves to stop the car.

“The vehicle was successfully spiked on Great South Road, Papatoetoe and
dumped nearby on Weston Avenue.

“However the six occupants have got out of the vehicle and fled on foot in
different directions.

“Eagle has assisted staff on the ground in locating all six, who were taken
into custody without incident.”

Acting Inspector Albrey says the arrests are a great example of various
Police teams working together.

“We know that vehicle thefts are extremely concerning for our community.

“Police are committed to ensuring that those responsible for crimes such as
this will be held to account.”

Police would also like to remind the public to immediately report anything of
concern to Police by calling 111.

A 19-year-old will appear in Manukau District Court today charged with
unlawfully taking a vehicle.

Two 17-year-olds, a 15-year-old, 14-year-old and 12-year-old have been
referred to Youth Aid Services.
