We are sailing into another week just like the new America’s Cup holders Team Emirates New Zealand. Well done lads. Another win this weekend for the All Blacks should round out the week nicely.

It was great seeing the pubs and bars full on Saturday night with patrons cheering on their respected sides and the good behaviour afterwards.

There was a good turnout for the Matariki Festival on the lakefront on Saturday night and the fireworks were spectacular or as one person put it, “BOOMTASTIC”. I’m not even sure if that is a real word but it sounds fitting.

As far as jobs that we dealt with this week go, I can tell you about the following cases and as always if you can provide any information to assist with any of the following enquiries please contact us at (03) 443 7272 or Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.

A rock was thrown through the glass sliding door of the milk vending kiosk on Kane Road this week. This is udderly unacceptable and left the owners in a bad mooooooooood.

It was a bad week on the roads for several motorists. We had a total of seven crashes reported. All of these happened on the Cardrona Valley Road and the Crown Range Road. Most of these crashes involved icy roads or grit. We can’t stress enough, the importance of taking that little bit of extra care when driving. In one of the crashes a passenger was thrown from the vehicle and was taken to the Queenstown Hospital with cuts and bruises. This can’t happen with a safety belt on!

A male was arrested and charged with a fraud offence after obtaining a bond payment for a house that was not his to rent.

A pair of bamboo blonde sunglasses were taken from a sunglass rack at a local shop on Ardmore Street.

A female driver was processed for drink driving after she got her vehicle stuck on a public walking track near Mount Iron. She was spotted by a passing patrol vehicle trying to get her vehicle out of a ditch. The breath test result was a staggering 966 micrograms of alcohol per litre of breath. She was definitely not in a state to drive and that was clearly obvious with the path she chose.

Other than these and a few other matters that are non disclosable it has been a pretty good week.

Stay warm and have a safe week.
