Whitianga Police Report 6 August - 13 August

Monday 6th August, to Monday 13th August, 2018

Scammers and fraudsters are always looking for an opportunity to dishonestly obtain people’s property. In the past week we have had reports of telephone calls to victims by unsolicited people trying to obtain computer details. We have also had a scammer who has accessed a computer and threatened a victim stating they would put disturbing material on their computer. Please don’t give your details out to unknown people, and keep passwords secret.
We have also had reports of bloggers commenting on local websites for no other reason but to intentionally upset other people and Police advice is that society should ignore these people until they have something constructive to say.    

7th – 1 x 65yr old local man for Threatening Behaviour.
8th – 1 x 53yr old local man for 2 x warrants to Arrest for failing to attend court. 
12th – 1 x 32yr old local man for Wilful Damage. 

Two Family Harm incidents attended this week.
On the 8th a young couple argued at a Moewai Park Road address about their relationship and sound advice was given, while on the 10th a couple at a Cook Drive address argued over financial issues and other agencies have offered support.
On the 6th building paper and roofing ridge iron was stolen from a Centennial Drive address. A home computer at a Tarapatiki Drive address was accessed for dishonest purposes on the 8th, while on the 9th a red Miro scooter was stolen from South Highway. Also on the 9th an offender was unlawfully on a Mayfair Close address, knocking on the windows in the early hours of the morning and running off before the occupier could see who it was. A suspicious vehicle was observed on Whitby Ave on the afternoon of the 11th and our enquiries are continuing.           

No drunk drivers apprehended during this week.
