Police warn of suspicious activity in Puddle Alley

Police are warning Mosgiel residents to be vigilant about house security after an alleged offender was chased from two Puddle Alley properties in the past 10 days.

Senior Sergeant Ben Butterfield, of Dunedin, said a Puddle Alley resident confronted a Maori woman on his property about 4.45pm on Thursday.

She was described as about 1.7m tall, of stocky build with dark shoulder-length hair, wearing a cardigan and a short skirt.

The woman fled the property in a "brownish/grey" Honda station wagon which had a dent on  a passenger door.

Nothing was taken.

It is the second property to be affected in the area in the past 10 days.

On February 1, another Puddle Alley resident disturbed a Maori woman when she entered their house.

She escaped with $40 cash which was taken out of a vehicle at the property.

Snr Sgt Butterfield asked Mosgiel residents to keep an eye out for suspicious activity on their property, and notify police if they saw the woman or the vehicle.

Dunedin police (03) 471-4800, Crimestoppers 0800-555-111.
