More properties damaged in vandalism rampage

Recently, two dwellings on Rowles Road were damaged by vandals, with bricks thrown through windows and doors of houses that were being built.

The Post Newspaper was contacted to say that more dwellings have been affected.

Inspector Kay Lane said, “Police are investigating an incident where a number of uninhabited dwellings were vandalised at Belmont Park Estate in Pukekohe. Several properties still under construction suffered damage including broken windows.”

She said Police are currently following lines of inquiry in relation to the incident.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Pukekohe Police on 09 237 1700.

Police also advise property managers to ensure their building sites are secured at all times and to consider deterrents such as CCTV cameras or other monitoring equipment.

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.
