Attention Neighbours.

Police Intel has noticed several day time and early evening burglaries in the Epsom/Royal Oak area.

In most cases the offender(s) have gained entry by smashing either a bedroom or living room window and reaching through to break the lock/latch.

The offender(s) are targeting passports, jewellery and small electronics.

Our Tactical Crime Unit is investigating and Front-line Police will be deployed to the area.

Police need neighbours in the area to be on the lookout.

Please be on alert for any vehicles or persons that you suspect maybe looking into/or coming on to your property.

Please make a note of the vehicle and registration, and the description of the persons and their actions.

Don't be afraid to call 111.

Your call may prevent yourself or a neighbour becoming a victim.

Police would like to remind the public of the importance of securing their vehicles when not in use and not leaving valuables on display.

We are again seeing an increase in over-night thefts from unlocked vehicles parked both on the Street and on private properties.

Many of the thefts are occurring from vehicles parked down long driveways, where thieves have access to multiple properties.

In some instances vehicles have been left with keys in the ignition and doors unlocked.

Push bikes and expensive garden equipment is also going missing.

These thefts are preventable if owners take the time to lock up their property.

This trend is currently occurring across several east Auckland suburbs.

Hi There,

Due to a recent spate of residential burglaries in the central/east Auckland area in which multi-story buildings are being targeted, police would like to remind the public about locking doors and windows even in high rise apartments and keeping valuables such as jewellery and small electronic items out of sight when not in use.

Please keep your garden sheds and garages locked and ensure ladders are stored away and scaffolding is not easily accessible.

It’s also important to report suspicious activity as soon as possible, as many burglars will spend time scoping out properties beforehand.

Attention Neighbours

Police have noticed an increase in crime around the Glendowie area, most notable Riddell Rd.

Offenders appear to be going down driveways and stealing out of vehicles. They are usually smashing a window and taking what ever they can see.

Often the offenders are getting away with very expensive electronic items and even large sums of cash.

Can you please ensure you remove all items ,(even that old bag with nothing in it), so offenders are not tempted to break into your vehicle.

Current enquiries reveal the offenders have likely come into the Glendowie area by vehicle (possibly stolen from another suburb) and breaking into the vehicles in the early hours of the morning. You may have noticed a vehicle was set alight in Glendowie over the weekend.

Just a reminder don't be afraid to ring 111 if you see anything suspicious. Currently (on top of our normal resources) the Police Field Training Unit is working in the Auckland Eastern Area. They are all young and very keen to get out and make their first arrests/successful investigation.

Burglaries while occupants at home

I hope that you have all had a good break over the Christmas - New Years period and are still enjoying the good weather.

I thought I would pass on a trend around Burglaries.

I hope that you have all had a good break over the Christmas - New Years period and are still enjoying the good weather.

I thought I would pass on a trend around Burglaries.

Our Burglary Investigation Unit noticed a number of burglaries have occurred when the occupants are home, which is unusually as burglaries generally occur when the occupants away.

We believe that due to the hot weather windows and doors are being left open to keep the house cool, and offenders are taking advantage of this.

If you do leave your doors open in the evenings please make sure you are near enough to detect someone approaching. If you want to leave your windows open all night look at investing in window safety stays.

Stay Safe
