Police closing in

Police believe they are closing the net on offenders after a series of incidents including vehicle theft in Central Otago but are concerned the nature of offences is escalating.

Central Otago sub area commander Senior Sergeant Ian Kerrisk said this week vehicles were taken from Alexandra and Clyde and a mountain bike from Alexandra.

The offenders were believed to be those involved with graffiti in Clyde recently.

He said police believe there was a party at a Russell St house that night but they would like to speak to anyone who knew where the party was or who may have seen a group of young people in the area of Russell and Chicago Sts, Alexandra.
