Opshop Burglary

Lara from Ngongotaha

Our lovely St Barnabas Opshop in Ngongotaha was burgled last night. We have always been (and will continue to be) there for our beautiful community. Our prices are amazingly low as part of our commitment to assisting those in need in our community. It breaks my heart to know that someone did this to our community Opshop. This is the second break-in we have had in less than two months. Last time they were not as prepared and left with very little. This time they stole our safe after tearing it from the wall – that is less money that we can put into our community now.
IF you hear anything or know anything about this burglary (night of Sept 7th) please contact the Rotorua police.
Thanks for your ongoing support.
