So this is a concerning one - a drone was seen flying over a Te Atatū Peninsula woman's property the day before a $4500 statue was stolen from her garden.
The incident happened as the Government assesses what it can do about rogue and dangerous drone operators.

Ōtara is in a fruit and vegetable lockdown after a facialis fruit fly was found.
It's the first time this particular fruit fly - which is native to Tonga - has been found in New Zealand, and it could be devastating to crops.
How has the fruit fly discovery affected you? Are you worried about purchasing local fruit and veges from the area? Will you still go to the Ōtara markets this weekend?
