On leaving for work at 4am on Thursday December 23, Marcus Waldman discovered both his family s vehicles had been stolen from the front of their Glasgow Tce home. Working 16-hour days as a butcher in Palmerston North, Mar- cus was further tested without any transport. His wife Zoe and their two young children found themselves confined to home or using a bicycle thanks to the thieves who stole their two aging Toyota Coronas. Inside Marcus s 24-year-old maroon Corona was his six-month- old set of golf clubs which his employer had gifted to him after he was selected to represent New Zea- land in an Australasian butchery challenge. Zoe s 16-year-old silver/blue Cor- ona had the children s two car seats in it. The couple tried to remain upbeat about Christmas for their children s sake. And they were appreciative and impressed with the generosity of their friends, neighbours and colleagues. A car has been lent to Marcus to enable him to travel to work, after he had to take a $50 taxi ride on the first morning. Others have lent cars short-term and have helped with errands around town. People have been fantastic -- but I only have one word to describe those responsible for stealing our cars. It is not like they were flash, said Zoe. The family believe because of the age of the cars they were broken into, then pushed down the road, since no neighbours heard any sounds during the night. With two vehicles being stolen, it is assumed more than one person was involved. Both cars were insured. Police are looking into the thefts and would appreciate hearing any information . Gathering place: At least 30 teens and preteens on skateboards, bikes and scooters were enjoying Feilding's skate park on a fine day last week. While scooters are gaining in popularity with this group of mainly males, there was a good proportion of riders showing their prowess on BMX bikes and skateboards. Manawatu District Council is considering shifting the skate park from its present position where it is part of the land which the council has agreed to buy from Manfeild Trust.

An observant witness immediately contacted police who discovered the stolen property in a house in nearby Warwick Street. A fifteen-year-old girl is now being dealt with by Youth Aid and the Wendy House has been returned. Constable Andrew Royds praised the neighbour for promptly contacting police and warned that more people are out wandering the streets late at night and wandering onto proper- ties. He reminded people to secure their yards and items which can be easily removed such as patio furniture . Car radar detectors and GPS devices are also being targeted by thieves. People may think it is a hassle to take them out of their cars, but it is more of a hassle to replace broken window and have your locks broken, said Mr Royds.
