Watergate, Camillagate, Corngate ... and now Gategate.
Police are investigating cases of gates being stolen from Dunedin properties over the past few weeks.
Thieves appeared to be targeting farm gates and wrought iron gates, Senior Sergeant Steve Aitken said.
In the latest incident, gates and posts were damaged at the Ravensbourne Boating Club this week, following an attempt to remove them.
The stolen gates could be used in illegal activity such as fencing a cannabis-growing operations, he said.
People were reminded to keep gates secure, and report suspicious behaviour to police.
