Stolen vehicles recovered

Two vehicles stolen last week in Queenstown have been recovered in the area at the weekend.

Senior Sergeant Paula Enoka, of Queenstown, said one car was located while being driven through the resort's CBD.

The owner had reported it missing to police and then saw it being driven by two males on Beach St.

She approached the pair and they fled from the vehicle.

Police could not say where the car had been stolen from.

Meanwhile, a Nissan Safari stolen from Lake Hayes Estate was found abandoned in the Shotover Delta with minor damage.

Snr Sgt Enoka said it was a good reminder for people to lock their cars, close their garage doors, and "remain security conscious''.
