On Monday 18 January 2016 two young males were observed in the Waikawa car park scrutinizing at depth the notice board. When approached they headed off at great speed up Waikawa Beach Road in separate cars.
Details of the cars were: –
Red Holden Commodore Estate which appeared to have been lowered for street racing.
Silver Honda CSX. One of the drivers had a buzz cut.
In the past few weeks there have been a number of house break-ins reported. If you see anyone acting suspiciously such as driving slowly down the street, stopping to look inside open garages or strangers entering property which is obviously vacant, politely ask if they are looking for someone or can you help them. If you are uncomfortable about approaching anyone, obtain a description of the person and the car especially the registration number and pass this information to the Levin Police.
We, the residents of Waikawa Beach, are the best security for the area. If we all keep our eyes open, word will go out to the criminal fraternity that Waikawa Beach is full of old nosy parkers who are good at looking after other people’s business and property. Because of this these criminals will realise it is not worth the effort as they will be probably caught before they leave Waikawa Beach Road.
You are also encouraged to get to know your neighbours. The Association also has a database of contact numbers for members so that they can be contacted for information if suspicions are aroused.
