Eye on Crime 22 November 2019-11-23

John from Johnsonville Community Policing Centre

In Johnsonville a blue Mazda Atenza hatchback parked overnight had the front registration plate stolen. The screws were also taken. A white Toyota Raum hatchback parked overnight on the street had a right rear window smashed to gain entry. A GPS unit, sunglasses, a spot light, safety shoes and a small sum of cash were taken. A silver Nissan Wingroad stationwagon parked on the street overnight was damaged when an intruder smashed a rear quarterlight window. No entry gained and nothing stolen. A Toyota Camry drove into a service station in Johnsonville Road and pumped $20 worth of petrol. He left the car with the key in the ignition while he went to pay. He next saw his car as it was driven off from the pump area, heading North. The vehicle contained recently purchased groceries, a lawnmower and a weedeater.

In Newlands a silver Nissan Tiida saloon parked overnight had the left rear quarterlight window smashed to gain entry. The vehicle was searched but nothing reported stolen. A purple Mazda Demio hatchback parked overnight was broken into via a smashed left rear quarterlight window. A variety of games, cable and associated equipment were stolen. A white Nissan Xtrail stationwagon parked in a carport overnight was entered and an Ipad, a sports bag and an Australian passport were stolen. A black Tapo moped broke down in the vicinity of Middleton Road and Willowbank Road. The owner went to get more oil and when he returned he noticed that someone had stolen his helmet. He later returned with a new helmet but this time found the Moped had also been stolen.

In Ngaio a black Audi Quattro station wagon parked briefly on the road during the late morning was stolen. The driver had accidentally left the key on the seat of the vehicle. A resident was surprised to find an unknown female wandering around their back garden at midday. The excuse given was that the intruder was a babysitter and she was playing hide and seek with a child. To reach the rear garden it would have been necessary to enter through the front garden and pass the house. The child being “minded” was not seen and the intruder was told to leave.

In Churton Park an Ipad Pro was stolen from a table just inside the front door. The door had been left open for the owners children to run inside, which they did and did not close the door.

In Karori a silver Nissan Dualis hatchback parked unlocked overnight within the property of a house was entered and a sum of cash, a pair of shoes and a passport were stolen.

In Wadestown a white BMW hatchback parked overnight on the road was broken into via a smashed front passenger window. A radar detector was stolen.

In Wilton a vacant house under renovation was entered through an open front door, but no sign of force having been used. Tools and paint were stolen. The locked door of a detached garage at a house was forced open and a red Honda CRF405X bike was stolen.

In Ngauranga a Europodium heavy trailer (30m long) was parked secure overnight in a commercial parking area. Intruders broke into it by removing the securing ratchets and lifting the covering PVC cover. They found the trailer empty but then broke into an unlocked metal tool box that was welded on to the trailer and removed some heavy duty tools.

In Kaiwharawhara a blue Subaru stationwagon parked overnight on the road was stolen.

Wayne Guppy - Whaitua Te Whanganui-a-Tara Committee

Community Engagement Advisor from Greater Wellington

Kia ora koutou, I am Wayne Guppy, mayor Upper Hutt City Council, and a member of the Whaitua Te Whanganui-a-Tara Committee tasked with making recommendations to Greater Wellington Regional Council on the future of our coastal and freshwater quality, and how our water is used. Our waterways and all the fish and species that live in them are precious taonga, so we have set out to understand how they are valued and what should be done to provide the future we want for our water.

The importance of the environment, Hutt River and our waterways are important to me and critical to the well-being of current and future generations. We are looking forward to working with you to maintain and improve the quality of the water in our catchments. We need to fix our waste and stormwater infrastructure with population growth putting more pressure on our pipe networks. I need your help to find solutions that are equitable and fair.

Connect with us to talk about what we can do together. You can reach us at whaitua@gw.govt.nz. To see what we have been doing visit our Facebook page (www.facebook.com...), and to share what you value about our water and your solutions have your say (www.haveyoursay.gw.gov.nz...)

The grey pavement, sky, and drizzling rain are no match for the fluorescent orange figure grooving to unheard music on the side of Wellington's Evans Bay Parade.
