Bush reveals fruits of crime
A bush in Feilding bore the fruits of crime on the weekend, with items from two separate crimes recovered.
Feilding sergeant Grant Lawton said the bush, on Sherwill St, saw the recovery of a stolen handbag and two chainsaws that appeared to have been stashed there on separate occasions.
Four 12-year-old children were referred to youth aid for taking the handbag, stolen from a Alexander House rest home on Denbigh St on Sunday.
A cellphone was recovered with the bag, but $400 in cash remained missing.
The origin of the two small chainsaws was unknown, and Mr Lawton said anyone who had one stolen in the last month should get in contact with police.
If they could give an accurate description of the chainsaw they could have it back, he said.
