Vehicle security alert

Police are reminding people to lock their vehicles after a man was seen trying to break into a van in a Blenheim driveway yesterday.

Constable Andrew Holdaway, of Blenheim, said a resident of Corry Cres, off Weld St, came across a large Caucasian man wearing baggy jeans, a dark hoodie and white gloves trying to get into a van about 1am.

A police dog unit tracked the man but could not find him.

Witherlea residents are asked to report any suspicious activity in the area.

"It serves as a timely reminder to ensure all vehicles and building are secured at the end of each day," Mr Holdaway said.
