Charges laid after Waihī burglaries

Police are seeking information following multiple arrests for Waihī burglaries.
Waihī Sergeant Nigel Sanderson said two Waihī men, aged 26 and 34, faced charges in the Waihī District Court after multiple burglaries at a Waihī store between October and December.
Police executed a search warrant at a Waihī address locating a large number of items believed to have been stolen in the burglaries.
“Solid investigative work and local knowledge assisted in identifying those responsible and executing the search warrant,” he said.

Some of the items seized included a generator, camping equipment, power tools and inflatable pools. “Police are pleased to be able to return these items to the rightful owner,” he said.
Police believe a white and blue truck was involved in a number of burglaries, and urge anyone who may have been a victim of offending involving this truck to contact Police on 105.
Meanwhile, an “eagle-eyed neighbour” helped Police recover a significant amount of stolen property worth around $30,000.
The goods, which were stolen from a Coromandel bach, were recovered from a Waihī address, and Police said they were making enquiries to locate the suspect.
The owners of the bach were alerted to the theft by a neighbour, who saw a vehicle leaving the property with a loaded trailer.
Enquiries led Police to a person of interest in the Waihī area. With the holiday season approaching, Police are reminding the public to review their home security.
