Police have noticed a developing trend of vehicles being broken into in parts of Napier. Tools from tradies’ vans and mag wheels from cars have been the targets in Napier Hill, Meeanee, and Napier South.

Police are encouraging tradies to get their tools engraved with their drivers’ licence number, so if the tools are recovered, we can return them. Community Patrols of New Zealand in Taradale is offering to engrave tools for free.

For owners of mag wheels, security locking nuts can be bought from auto stores.

If anyone’s vehicle has been targeted, or if people have information which would help catch these offenders, please call Police on 06 831 0700. Information can also be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers via 0800 555 111.

If you've noticed a missed call from a number you don't recognise (particularly international numbers), it is important that you don't call this number back and consider reporting this as a potential scam.

Phone companies are advising customers to reject these calls and if you have friends or family living overseas, it is recommended to have their numbers added as contacts in your mobile phone, so you can identify when they are calling you.
