Arrests made following Levin commercial burglaries

Levin Police have made three arrests in relation to a number of commercial burglaries.

Detective Sergeant Dave Wilson, Officer in Charge, Levin CIB says as a result of a number of search warrants, Police have recovered a substantial amount of stolen property.

“Two men, aged 18 and 19, have been arrested and are currently before the courts, charged with burglary.”

Det Sgt Wilson says the two men will appear in the Levin District Court on 22 August.

One minor has been referred to Youth Aid.

Enquiries are ongoing at this time.

“These arrests demonstrate that Police are committed to holding those responsible for property crime to account, but we need your help.

“We remind the community to be vigilant and ask that if they see anything suspicious to contact 111 immediately.

“Keep in contact with your neighbours, and let each other know if you notice anything unusual.”

Det Sgt Wilson says Neighbourhood Support groups can be particularly useful for this purpose.

“Importantly, we ask residents not to put themselves in danger or take the law into their own hands if confronted by offenders, but to instead contact Police.”
