A message from the Raglan Police

The summer so far has been a busy one in Raglan with a sharp rise in burglaries and break-ins.

After a thorough investigation, two people are now facing multiple charges as a result in the spate of burglaries over December. They are now before the District Court and we have been able to return some property to its rightful owners.

In January Raglan commercial businesses were twice targeted in the early hours of the morning by youth offenders from out of the area. The investigation continues and Police are optimistic about resolving these cases.

In the last 7 days, Raglan Police have responded to 8 reports of family harm. Although this may raise concern, the positive side of this is that people are prepared to call for assistance when required and report things that are of concern to them. Additionally, Police have also taken reports for an assault, threats and intimidation and a vehicle crash.

Lastly, I’d like to remind people that if it is an emergency, it is time critical and happening now, please ring 111. If you would like to make a report of lost property, or report an incident which has already occurred, please dial 105 to report, alternatively you can go online at 105.police.govt.nz and make a report there.

Have a great week and remember to look out for one another!

Senior Constable, Andrew Murphy and the Raglan Team
