On the beat

A who entered the Camp St Night'n Day store in Queenstown last Wednesday got more than he bargained for.

Sergeant Blair Duffy, of Queenstown, said the man noticed a photograph of himself on the front door - wanted for shoplifting.

"He lost the plot, ripped the picture down and started giving staff a hard time."

Sgt Duffy said the man was arrested for disorderly behaviour, but would also be facing a shoplifting charge.

• On Thursday police were called to a Marine Pde property to investigate the theft of two Bonsai trees from a glasshouse.

• At 2am on Thursday police were called to a domestic incident involving visitors from Rotorua.

• A Queenstown male was arrested and charged with trespass and being unlawfully on a property after refusing to leave a party at a Yewlett Cres, Frankton, address at 6.15am on Thursday.

Sgt Duffy believed the man was also charged with possession of an offensive weapon after threatening people with a bottle.

• Police were also seeking 440 litres of diesel stolen from a fuel trailer at a "remote building site" on the Crown Range Rd.

Anyone with information was asked to contact Queenstown police.
