Police seek information on vandalism

22:51, Feb 12 2013

Queenstown police are appealing to the public for information regarding the vandalism of an $85,000 toilet on the outskirts of the central business district.

Senior Constable Chris Blackford said police were alerted to damage done to the cubicle of one of the toilets at the One Mile at 8am on Monday.

"I'd suspect there would be a number of people who would know the offender.

"When you consider the toilet cost about $85,000 maybe an anonymous call to the police station could be made," Mr Blackford said.

A Peninsula Rd resident called police on Monday to report the theft of three amplifiers mounted in a box and a petrol can from a garage.

The resident also reported the rear window of their car had been smashed but no property was stolen from it, he said.

Meanwhile, a 19-year-old German woman who rear-ended a motorist as they were waiting to turn into the Arrowtown Golf Club at 12.20pm on Monday has been issued with an infringement notice for her poor driving.
