1 min read

The OPERATION VALOUR Police team investigating the burglary of the Army Museum at Waiouru in the early hours of Sunday morning the 2nd of December are seeking sightings and information in respect of a vehicle seen in the vicinity of the Museum at the time of the offence (1.10 a.m.) on State Highway One.

Detective Senior Sergeant Chris BENSEMANN. the Officer in Charge of the investigation, said he was seeking information in respect of what he described as a 1980s to 1990s light coloured station wagon. "I realise the description is a bit vague but we had hoped that the person who was driving the vehicle would have come forward during our earlier appeal for persons in the area at the time of the offence to contact the Police. That hasn't happened so we are asking specifically for the driver of that vehicle to contact the enquiry team on our Information Line 0800-VALOUR or via our internet contact on the Police Website." The Detective Senior Sergeant said that this may be the same vehicle sighted in the vicinity of the Tangiwai Sawmill a short time afterwards.
