Heartbreak in Marton

By Merania Karauria


Marton police are appealing for help to apprehend the offenders who have been creating heartbreak in the town.

Constable Richard Gower is urging the community to help solve several recent burglaries.

"Come on Marton, someone out there knows who is doing these crimes or has at least a good idea. Please do the right thing and give us this information," Mr Gower said.

"While some items stolen may be easily replaceable, others are not. During April items of jewellery of sentimental value, such as wedding rings, christening bracelets and medals were taken," he said.

A Harley Davidson motorcycle was taken along with jewellery and some cash from a home in French St on April 21.

"If anyone knows an owner of one of these machines then they know they are their pride and joy."

On April 15 in Ngahina St, computer equipment, cameras, jewellery, alcohol, medication, toiletries and medals were taken.

The youth centre in the old bowling club off Humphrey St was also broken in to on April 15 and computer gaming equipment and a guitar were taken.

A burglary was reported at a home on Harris St on April 17 and a computer tablet, cell phone and jewellery were taken.

An 18-year old male was arrested for breaking in and ransacking Speirs Foodstuffs.

Mr Gower said it appeared nothing was taken.

If you have any information that you think may be useful to police you can call in confidence to the Marton police on 06 3276555, Hunterville police 06 3219111 or Bulls police on 06 3222020.
