Financially struggling Hawera Rape Crisis is relieved their television equipment was found a few hours after being stolen in a break-in on Sunday night.

A police search of the town located the television unit behind the Salvation Army store beside Argyle St.

"There was no way financially we would be able to replace it," HRC manager Pam Bassett said. The unit was used all the time to screen various programmes to the different meetings and groups that used the building, she said.

Police have fingerprinted the scene and the window has been replaced.

HRC is struggling to find extra funding as the downscaling of Women's Refuge services in south and central Taranaki has made significant increases to their workload and petrol costs.
