✉️ Engage in neighbourhood groups so more people can keep an eye out for suspicious activity

These tips are being shared after a 44-year-old woman will appear in Pukekohe District Court on 28 March charged with theft.
An alleged mail thief in the Pukekohe area has hand-delivered herself into Police, following assistance from the community.
Counties Manukau South Senior Sergeant MJ Riddle says Police were aware of locals discussing a mail theft on social media. A report was made to Police at the time in January and had included enough detail including CCTV footage and a vehicle of interest. Following Police enquiries, the woman has brought herself into the Pukekohe Police Station a few days later

“This is a great result for the community and a timely reminder to the public to continue reporting any thefts from letterboxes.”
Senior Sergeant Riddle says
“Our community should be able to receive parcels and mail without concern of interference but unfortunately there are people in our communities who take advantage of opportunities to commit thefts from mail boxes and front porches."

“We encourage anyone who has been the victim of dishonesty offending to report it as soon as possible,” she says."

A significant road policing operation in Tāmaki Makaurau has yielded excellent results as Police monitored gang events in the region.

Area Commander for East Auckland Inspector Jim Wilson says “the checkpoints set up in the Mt Wellington and North Auckland area have been very effective and prevented a number of motorcyclists in the convoy from causing wider harm on the road.”

“I hope the community can see that our presence here today shows that Police do not tolerate gangs attempting to dominate our roads.”

In addition to the 100 infringement notices and seven motorbikes seized earlier in the day, Police will be issuing a further 20 infringement notices and two license suspensions.

Inspector Jim Wilson says “the check point on Marua Road, Mt Wellington was particularly effective and as a result we were able to stop each rider that came through and deter high-risk driving behaviours.”

While a number of people riding in the convoy were compliant and had vehicles that met the required standards, Police still fielded a number of reports from the public.

“Gang activity of this nature is unsettling for motorists, and it is unacceptable for groups to conduct themselves in a way that intimidates the community.

Police will continue to conduct enforcement operations like you have seen today and hold offenders to account” says Inspector Jim Wilson.

The high visibility check points will remain in place to prevent drink driving and disrupt antisocial behaviour.

Tāmaki Makaurau Police have a number of ongoing enquiries and CCTV footage will be reviewed to capture offending in relation to gang activity in Auckland today.

Anyone that has information relating to the activity are encouraged to report it to Police on 105 if they have not done so already.

It’s everybody’s responsibility to speak out and keep each other safe right now. If you think something is not ok with a friend, neighbour, or colleague, it’s okay to call Police on their behalf.
