A 66 year-old female was the victim of theft whilst attending church.
The Pukekohe local left her electric bike in the entrance of the Anglican Church on Queen Street, only to come out twenty minutes later to find that it had been taken.
The incident happened around 8.20am on Sunday 3 December 2017, and Sergeant Jonathan Ziesler from the Pukekohe Tactical Crime Unit is encouraging the community to come forward with any information.
“It is a very unique bike, as it is motorized. There can’t be many of these are around here, and someone must know where it is,” he said.
Those who have information on the stolen bike can contact Sergeant Ziesler at the Pukekohe Police Station on 09 237 1700, or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
