Police seek public help after fish finder stolen

Police in Queenstown are seeking information about a $3500 fish finder device stolen from Frankton Marina on Monday night.

Constable Craig Gibson, of Queenstown, said the device was stolen between 7pm on Monday and 10am yesterday.

The device is used to record depth information and fish activity under the water, Const Gibson said.

Police are seeking information from anyone who saw suspicious behaviour at Frankton Marina on Monday night, or anyone who has seen a discarded Garmin fish finder.

Anyone with information can call Queenstown police on 441-1600.

Emergency services were called to Burger King in Frankton when the panic alarm button was pressed three times about 11.30am yesterday.

Const Gibson said police were called to the restaurant last week for the same reason.

He said the matter was not being treated as suspicious, and police suspect an electronic malfunction with the button.

Inquiries are continuing.

Queenstown firefighters, in two fire appliances, were called to a false alarm on the corner of Rees and Beach Sts on Monday night.
