Auckland City East Police have made an arrest following a burglary on Dunkerron Avenue.

Thanks to the property’s security system, including CCTV, sensor lighting and an alarm system, Police were alerted to the suspicious activity early.

A Police team, including a delta unit, responded around 2.30am early this morning, Friday, 7 April.

Delta tracked the offender to a property on Wapiti Avenue, 800 meters from the burgled property.

The offender was located hiding up a tree on another property and was taken into custody.

A 30-year-old man is due to appear in Auckland District Court on Saturday, 8 April on burglary charges.

This is a good example of someone that had a well-secured house, with good security measures, which allowed Police to respond fast and apprehend the offender.

Police remind people to:

  • Lock your doors and windows.
  • Record the serial numbers of expensive electronic items and photograph these and other valuables.
  • Keep valuables out of sight.
  • Install an alarm system, and get sensor lights fitted.
  • Keep garden sheds and garages locked when not in use.
  • Keep hedges or plants around doors and windows well-trimmed, don’t give the burglar a place to hide.
  • Join or form a neighbourhood support group.

If you witness any suspicious activity, please contact Police on 105 if it’s after the fact, or 111 if it’s happening now.
