from the shop and decamped in a stolen Subaru Impreza.
The vehicle, was dumped nearby in Homai Street. The Matrix Security
officer provided a detailed description and start point to the police
dog handler. Police enquires are continuing into this matter and other
offences committed in the area that morning.

Christmas and alcohol 6
We all love a party and what better
excuse than Christmas and New Year.
But how do you maximise the fun and
minimise the trouble?
Horror stories in the media about
gatecrashers drummed up through
mobile phone texts and the internet
would understandably make some
hosts think twice.
Attendees should plan transport in
advance -- make sure there is a sober
driver. Avoid walking home alone.
Stick with your friends. If the host is
happy to let you stay over consider this
Hosts should ensure there is adult
supervision and a plan in the event of
gatecrashers or disorder. Only invite
people you know will not cause
trouble. Provide plenty of snacks or
food and non-alcoholic drinks.
Drink driving continues to be a
serious problem throughout New Zea-
land and is the second biggest con-
tributing factor to road crashes. Drug
driving is also a growing concern and
as a result of changes to legislation
police now have the powers to carry
out compulsory tests on drivers
suspected of being impaired by drugs,
whether illegal or prescribed.
The simplest message is if you drink
or have taken drugs -- don't drive.
If you are going out and want to
drink arrange to stay over, or have
responsible transport organised.
Nominated sober drivers, taxis, public
transport, dial-a-driver, are all options
If you know someone who is driving
under the influence of drink or drugs
call the police or the anonymous crime
line Crimestoppers on 0800-555-111.
