POLICE COMMUNITY REPORT

POLICE COMMUNITY REPORT

Tena koutou katoa, Happy New Year from the Waikouaiti Police.

In late December 2008, police attended a burglary at a commercial
property at Evansdale. The offender was a Central Otago youth who has
links to the area; he has been spoken to by police and admitted a
string of offending since leaving home shortly after Christmas.
Residents in Evansdale are advised to continue be vigilant and report
anything suspicious to police.

On the 20th of December 2008, police were called to a serious crash
which occurred at the intersection of Coast Road and State Highway One
Evansdale. The female driver of one of the vehicles involved received
serious injuries and was taken to Dunedin Hospital.

Police from Waikouaiti and Dunedin attended the annual Waikouaiti New
Years Race Day; it was an enjoyable day with no reported incidents as
expected.

Remember the warm weather brings with it the opportunity to socialise
outdoors, please be considerate of others including neighbours, and
remember host responsibility. Don't allow your mates or family members
to drive home if they have been drinking.

If you require information regarding road conditions telephone Transit
New Zealand on 0800 44 44 49. If you see anything suspicious or if you
wish to speak to the Police regarding any other matter you can contact
us on 03 465 9127. In emergencies dial 111. Until next month, take
care.
