Burglary Tuesday 19 June (last Tuesday)

In the vicinity of Ahuroa Rd and Ahuroa Valley Rd intersection.

Came home to find my door kicked in and all computer gear taken, mostly old, and some not even going, plus a selection of odd little things – oddest being frozen stoat bait. Had deadlocks and all windows secure, can only think it was random passers-by. A neighbour saw two cars parked at the road intersection, would be interesting to know if anyone else was hit. Police have been and fingerprinted.
