Arrest and property recovery following Hastings search warrants

Arrest and property recovery following Hastings search warrants

Eastern

The following can be attributed to Detective Senior Sergeant Martin James:
 
Hawke's Bay Police continue to put pressure on burglars this week by executing a series of search warrants in the Hastings area.
 
Police were delighted to recover two Cevelo racing bikes that were stolen from a Havelock North property in 2016. The bikes, worth over $7,000, were not insured and the owner had given up all hope of seeing them again.
 
Also located at the same address was an engagement ring and a Tag Heuer watch stolen during a burglary at Maraekakaho on Tuesday morning.   
 
A 46-year-old man was arrested and charged with burglary and will appear in the Hastings District Court on Monday 2 October.
 
Police would like to assure the public that they are committed to reducing burglaries and bringing offenders to account. 
 
If anyone has information relating to burglaries or other criminal activity in Hawke's Bay, please call us on 06 873 0500.
 
Information can also be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
