UPDATE FOUND! Stolen from Fitzroy Shops Electric Bike, Specialized HardRock

Andrew from Spotswood

Just received a call from the friendly police in Bell Block, they found the bike dumped in Bell Block and I am collecting it today!
Thanks everyone for your great interest.

Stolen from Fitzroy Shops last night (Wed 27 May) between 5pm and 8.30pm, my teenage sons Specialized HardRock Electric Bike.

Pretty gutted as my son rides this bike from Spotswood to Fitzroy several times a week to his part time job at the shops.

Was chained to the blue railing shown in the 2nd Pic,

First pic is of a spare non electric bike with same frame. Electric bike has thinner road tyres.

Bike has custom battery pack made by myself from scavenged old laptop batteries, and custom charger also built by myself, so the new "owner" will not be able to charge it.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Police Report Case number: OR-56155N

Found CCTV

19.01pm, Male heavy build.
Grey Sweatshirt with Blue NBA type singlet over the top with LARGE "05" in white lettering
Light coloured faded blue baggy jeans
Black Sneakers white soles

Airport Company wants another $20M !

Peter from New Plymouth

I was one of those invisible ratepayers who made submissions to the NPDC about our new $30M airport.

It was neither needed nor warranted in my opinion, our Mayor on the other hand opined that " it would keep the tills ringing" . So hows that going Neil?

While we were assured that it would not ever be a burden on the ratepayer, no sir not ever, it was entirely predictable that it would be given the councils, any councils, history of dabbling in commerce. It was just a matter of when and how!

And now they want another $20 million or so. Outrageous.
Its time the council was called to account and some resignations tendered . I'll hold my breath.
