A couple's car was stolen while they were taking a dip in
Lake Wakatipu at Frankton at noon on Thursday.
Senior Constable Chris Blackford, of Queenstown, said the car
keys were wrapped in a towel on the beach. The couple were in
the water for only about 15 minutes, but when they returned
they found the keys and car gone.
The car is a green Subaru Legacy station wagon with the
number plate ZK9450. If anyone has information on the matter,
please contact the police.
