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.
In support of the whole of government response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19), Crimestoppers has developed a reporting process for both the 0800 555 111 and www.crimestoppers... portals.
The anonymous foundation for all our reports remains if required, and all reports that relate to self-isolation breaches, illegal outdoor gatherings or similar, will be immediately forwarded to the appropriate authorities.

Crimeline reports do not replace your option to ring police directly on 111 or 105 or your ability to advise the Ministry of Health through the NHCCselfisolation@health.govt.nz email address.

My husband is an essential worker and he was very surprised when he was driving and saw lots of people walking in the streets at Remuera (he saw elders too). He said it looks like a day without car, but people outside.
I know we can go out to have some air but there is not point if everybody go out at the same time and don’t take the 2 meters distance! (Just saying)
The PM said act like you have COVID-19..
if we don’t help each other the quarantine is going to be longer.
Take care and stay safe
Dear neighbours and NZ Gardener family,
Our April issue should be with our subscribers now and available in supermarkets and service stations (having been distributed prior to the lockdown restrictions). Whether or not it's on the stands yet is a bit patchy ... but then the incredibly brave and hard-working supermarket staff have quite a bit on their plate right now so I understand if there is a delay! Please, please, please everyone ... don't go out to buy it! Normally of course we love you buying NZ Gardener but right now it's far more important that you stay home and stay safe. (You can buy a copy with your online shopping though! That's safe and I think we are all in the market for something uplifting to read right now).
In this issue we offered to send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who sent us a SSAE. Just to reassure you, we will still send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who is keen to participate. We are just not quite sure when! Ignore the dates in the magazine of when you needed to send the envelope in by - that has been indefinitely extended. But we cannot wait to send you the seed and for those flowers to bloom as by then we will be well through this or even have it behind us. And keep letting us know what you are sowing and growing, send in pictures of your harvest, your flowers or what you are sharing.
We always love hearing from NZ Gardener readers but now when we are all staying apart that connection means more than you can imagine. Stay home, stay safe and stay in touch everyone. For the most updated gardening advice, subscribe to our digital e-zine Get Growing, which will be delivered to your inbox completely free.
