Christmas gifts taken in break-in

A Dunedin family's Christmas presents were stolen in one of several burglaries in the city over the weekend.

Acting Sergeant Tracy Turner said there were several break-ins and burglaries in Dunedin from Friday to Saturday.

One property in Ocean Grove had ''toys and Christmas presents'' taken from its out buildings sometime over Saturday night.

Sgt Turner did not know the value of the toys and presents as the family was still in the process of calculating the value.

The house was secured, she said.

Other items stolen over the weekend included an X-Box and electronics from a North Dunedin property yesterday morning.

Alcohol was also taken from the property which Sgt Turner said was likely to be a student flat.

It was ''secured but not necessarily locked''.

Electronics were also taken from a South Dunedin property.

There was also a speaker taken from a St Kilda address yesterday afternoon and a single number plate taken from a vehicle in Dunedin Central.

Sgt Turner said it was unusual for a single number plate to be taken as usually both were taken to be used for a future crime.
