Rotorua Police need further help from the public in identifying the individual of individuals responsible for the break in and destruction of trees at the Scion Crown Research property in Sala Street, Whakarewarewa.
Detective Senior Sergeant Zane Smith, Rotorua CIB, thanked Rotoroa residents who have telephoned police so far but says more information is needed to help solve the crime which happened some time between Monday 9 April and Tuesday morning 10 April.
Police also want to hear from the people who were using a white utility vehicle with a white canopy which was parked on a track near the Department of Conversation building which is adjacent to the Scion research property.
“We hope that these people may have information which could help our inquiry,” Detective Senior Sergeant Smith said.
Police ask that anyone with information about the person or people involved in the burglary, or who saw anything out of the ordinary in or around the Scion Crown Research property or the Long Mile Road, over the Easter weekend, to contact them.
Anyone with information that will help the inquiry is asked to call Rotorua Police on 07 348 0099, or provide information anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
