A number of our local clientele have failed to appear in court over the past few months, and as a result Warrants for their arrests have been issued. If you have failed to appear in court, ensure you get over there immediately to have a new date set. Should you continue to remain at large without doing this, police may assist you in attending court via Hamilton Station.


On Tuesday, 26July a minor verbal argument occurred at a Cook Drive address over relationship issues. Both parties were spoken to with advice given.

Friday, 29 July at a Moewai Park Road address, a mother and son had a heated argument over minor issues. The male party had already left the address upon police arrival.

ARRESTS: No arrests this week


Friday, 29 July, a truck had a blow out on a front tyre while negotiating a bend on SH25, Whenuakite. Unfortunately, the driver was unable to maintain control of the vehicle, which ended up on its side in the ditch. Thankfully no-one was hurt. With the weather we have been having recently, now is a good reminder for everyone to check their vehicle tyres to ensure they have sufficient tread depth. Vehicle safety is everyone’s responsibility.

Drive Safe and Drive Well.
