Hi Kaikoura

It has been a busy week for us dealing with thefts from rural properties and vehicle accidents involving tourists visiting our town.

It is probably timely to ask our rural community to be vigilant and secure all implement sheds and items of value, and please, if you see anything or anyone acting suspiciously on your property or neighbouring properties, then phone the police immediately on 111.

A stolen vehicle was stopped on Friday which resulted in the arrest of a 42-year-old man from Ashburton.

He had committed a burglary at a farm in Cheviot and stole the vehicle from another rural property in an attempt to make his way to the North Island.

He is now facing numerous charges and has been remanded in custody.

Our thanks to a concerned member of the public who phoned the police and alerted us to this person's manner of driving which ultimately resulted in his arrest and prevention of further offending.

That's about all for this week. Stay safe and take care.

Julian Lewis,
