WHEN EVERY SECOND COUNTS...
While on routine patrols around Remuera Township, a Matrix Security patrol officer
observed three males acting suspiciously outside a local jewellery store.
Noticing that they were being watched, the three males ran to the back of the
store. The Matrix Security patrol officer then saw them take off in a black car and
immediately notified police.
The police ran a check on the car's registration, which was traced back to a male with
a history of theft. A police unit was dispatched to observe their activity.

African stories to delight
African adventures: Cherryl Burger has written a book about her childhood
experiences growing up in Kruger National Park.
By SHELLEY GRECO
Growing up with a pet monkey
and surrounded by wild animals
is not your usual Kiwi childhood.
But for one South African expat,
that was just life.
Cherryl Burger has written a
children s book so that she can
share her memories of Africa with
others. She s arranged for $3 from
every copy sold to be donated to
the Starship Foundation.
An African Scrapbook -- Ele-
phant, buffalo and baboon taxis is
Ms Burger s true stories of life
growing up in South Africa s
Kruger National Park. It features
personal photographs and fun
facts and figures about the park
and its animals.
"Because children and adults
are fascinated by my stories I
decided that I was going to put it
in book form to share with chil-
dren. It s for the young and young
at heart," the St Heliers resident
Ms Burger and her family lived
in the national park s staff village
while her parents worked there as
shopkeeper and camp superin-
At age six she was the first stu-
dent to enrol at the village school
in Skukuza, the main camp at
Kruger National Park.
Ms Burger, 59, has decided to
help the Starship Foundation
after working with children affec-
ted by cancer in her job as a
nuclear medicine technologist at
Sarah Woodhams of the Star-
ship Foundation says the organis-
ation is grateful for the support.
"It is a stunning book and we
wish her every success. As a Star-
ship staff member, Cherryl has
requested all donations go
towards the oncology ward."
The author has a message to
children who read her book.
"May each page fill you with
delight. I hope your childhood
years are magical too."
