Woman taken to hospital after crash

A woman was taken to Dunedin Hospital with minor injuries after a crash in South Dunedin yesterday.

A witness said the car, driven by the woman, appeared to pull out in front of an oncoming truck in Bay View Rd.

Acting Senior Sergeant Ben Butterfield said the truck driver had not been injured. Inquiries continued into the cause of the crash, he said.

About 50 litres of petrol was taken from a boat parked in Claremont St, Maori Hill.

The fuel was stored in the boat's two tanks and a jerrycan stored on the boat, Senior Sergeant Mark Crawford said.

The fuel was taken sometime between August 21 and 31.

Clothing was taken from a Highgate clothesline between 7am and noon on Monday.

The window of a car parked in Elm Row was smashed some time between August 30 and September 1.

It did not appear anything was taken although a car door was found unlocked, Snr Sgt Crawford said.

A nail gun, worth about $800, and a socket set were taken from a container on a building site in Lovelock Ave, in North Dunedin.

A laptop was taken from the office of an Otago Polytechnic building in Harbour Tce between August 29 and September 1.

Anyone with information about the offending was asked to contact Dunedin police on 471-4800. Information can also be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555-111.
