Eye on Crime 29th November 2019

John from Johnsonville Community Policing Centre

In Johnsonville a house was broken into, either through a kitchen window or a sliding door leading to a kitchen. Both were found open. A messy search was made in the property and a large screen TV and a door key were stolen. A white Toyota Vitz hatchback parked at the park and ride area at the Johnsonville railway station was broken into via a smashed rear window. Nothing was reported stolen.

In Newlands a white Nissan Caravan light van parked overnight was broken into through a smashed window. A number of specialised technical tools were stolen as well as a laptop computer. A red Nissan X-Tail stationwagon parked during the day on the grass verge in Middleton Road had its driver’s side window smashed to gain entry. A computer tablet was stolen. A courier delivered parcel was left on the doorstep of a house. The courier did not knock but sent a photo of the delivered package to the phone of the recipient who was at home at the time. By the time the phone was checked, an hour later, the parcel had been stolen.

In Khandallah access to a house was gained during the day by jemmying a rear kitchen window when the occupants were away. A search was focussed on a bedroom and some items are reported stolen. An Apple TV, an Ipad, an Ipod, headphones, several watches and perfume are listed as missing.

In Crofton Downs a house was entered during the day through an unlocked ranchslider door at the front of the house. An Ipad that had been left on charge was stolen.

In Karori a house was entered although there was no sign of forced entry. Some items of jewellery were stolen.

In Wadestown a red Ligero road bike parked locked during the night was stolen.

Would free Sunday parking make you visit the CBD more?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Paid parking on weekends looks set to stay. Wellington Mayor Andy Foster campaigned on restoring free central city parking on Sundays, and included it in his "first 150 days" plan. But as the council seeks public engagement on a review of parking policies, Foster admitted he didn't have the votes to pass free Sunday parking. Would free parking make you visit the CBD more?

Lace up for summer fun

The Team from Resene ColorShop Johnsonville

Who wouldn’t want to show up to play in flash shoes like these? Customise a fresh pair of footwear or fancy up some old favourites – while covering up scuff marks – with nothing more than a few Resene testpots, artist’s brushes and a bit of good quality masking tape.

If your kids are little, you can help mask off any of the harder parts – such as around the soles – that you want to keep paint off of and remove laces, if there are any. You can even use this idea to makeover adult shoes that never get worn because the colour doesn’t go with anything.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.
