Arrests made after construction site burglaries in the Lower Hutt area

Lower Hutt burglaries news

Hutt Valley Police arrested two 39-year-old men in relation to a recent spate of burglaries and thefts from residential construction sites in Wainuiomata and Lower Hutt.

Both appeared in the Hutt Valley District Court yesterday.

One of the men faces charges of receiving stolen property and possession of cannabis for supply, while the other is charged with burglary and cultivating cannabis.

“We thank Hutt Valley tradies and other members of the construction industry for their information and support in this investigation”, Detective Sergeant Richard Orr says.

Inquiries are continuing into other similar burglaries and thefts in the area. Police are asking anyone with information about these incidents to please call 105 quoting file number 220523/1407 or call anonymously via Crime stoppers on 0800 555 111.

Hutt Valley Police is advising tradespeople to beef up building site security following the increase in residential construction site burglaries and thefts.

Detective Sergeant Richard Orr is advising tradies to put some form of unique marking on materials stored at building sites.

“This will assist with identifying products if they are stolen and may even prevent the items being stolen in the first place.”

Also, all efforts should be made to secure building sites overnight, as this is when most offending occurs, Detective Sergeant Richard Orr says.
