A message from the Raglan Police: May 13th

In the last two weeks Police have received reports of five family harm matters, two burglaries, a stolen vehicle and two other dishonesty related offences. 

Two people are being prosecuted for drink driving and there has been one reported crash on SH 23.

Of significance we are appealing for information regarding a missing person. The man in his forties notified a friend on Sunday,  May 2, that he was going to fish off the rocks at Papanui Point and would be returning that afternoon. The man’s vehicle was later located in the Papanui Point carpark and his belongings located on the beach. Search and Rescue have been searching the area extensively but have been unable to locate the man. We are asking that anyone who was at Papanui Point that Sunday, May 2, please contact us by ringing 105 – quoting file number 210503/2078. 

Please ensure as the weather changes, so does our driving:

Drive slower than you normally would – it only takes a split second to lose control in wet or icy conditions.

Avoid sudden braking or turning movements that could cause you to skid. 

Accelerate smoothly and brake gently.

Enjoy the autumn and remember to look out for one another!

Senior Constable Andrew Murphy and the Raglan Team
