Tënä koutou katoa,
On 1 October a vehicle was stolen while parked at the Warrington Domain. It was taken in the middle of the day while the owner was out walking her dog. The car was recovered the next day down a bank along State Highway 1 not far from Warrington.
On 19 October a wallet, iPod, and cell phone were taken from a vehicle while it was parked at an address along Coast Road, Warrington. The owner left the vehicle unlocked and was away from it for only a short time; it would appear that an opportunistic thief took advantage of this. Inquiries are continuing in relation to this offence.
On 23 October police were called out to deal with several cattle beasts roaming along State Highway 1, Kilmog. A member of the public reported the cattle late that night after clipping one of them and breaking the wing mirror on her vehicle. This is the fourth reported incident involving cattle roaming onto State Highway 1 around the Pryde Road, Porteous Road area. If the unfortunate were to happen and a person was injured or worse as a result of a crash involving a cattle beast then the owner of that animal may be held to account.
That's all for this month, take care.
