Vehicle Break Ins

Sergeant Smith from Newmarket Community Policing Team

Dear Neighbours

Over the long weekend we had a number of vehicle break ins and thefts from vehicles from the Newmarket and Remuera Areas. This follows on from the previous week where Epsom and One Tree Hill was targeted.

Enquiries are on going and police tracked possible suspects back to a Motel in Epsom.

The offenders were using a stolen gold 2005 Subaru Forester Station wagon, however this vehicle has since been recovered from the motel.

We believe the suspects left the motel in a white 2005 Holden Rodeo 4x2 Ute. (not actual vehicle pictured)

The main offender is described as Male/Maori, 25-35 Years old, 6 foot tall, Solid Build and short dark hair. The passenger was described as Male/Maori, 18 - 22 years old, and shorter and chubbier than the other male.

If you see anyone hanging around your vehicle or looking into it don't be afraid to call 111. It was from one member of the public calling the police about someone hanging around her vehicle that has enabled police to return a victims stolen vehicle and now have further lines of enquiry to locate the males braking into other vehicles.

Stay Safe
