CHRISTMAS @ ST. ANSELM’S

Wellington police catch Christmas parcel thieves Santa had a bit of a helping hand to save a number of Christmas presents last week, thanks to some great work by a number of Wellington District staff. Police were called around 11am on Wednesday when a courier van was stolen from an address on Rowe Road, Wainuiomata where it had been delivering a parcel. After receiving information from members of the public who reported seeing suspicious behaviour in the area, staff already deployed in the area were able to locate and arrest the man responsible a short time later. It’s one of several other similar incident in the Wellington area recently, where a number of offenders have stolen courier parcels. On Wednesday, December 6, police received a burglary complaint from a resident of Mclintock Street in Johnsonville, who had a courier package taken from her doorstep. A few days later, police were also alerted about a woman who had been caught by a resident in Ngaio stealing a package from her letterbox. Thanks to good information from members of the public, police were able

to locate the offender and the vehicle she was driving. The 28-year-old female driver and the 32-year-old passenger were arrested and are facing charges of theft, dangerous driving and driving while disqualified. There have been another two similar incidents in Johnsonville area. It’s a timely reminder to people to protect themselves from this type of offending, as it is unfortunately common in the lead up to Christmas. Police advices to get packages delivered to a place where someone will be home to receive them. If you do have deliveries made to your home, make sure you’re going to be home to sign for them, or have a secure location where they can be left. If you’re not going to be home when the parcel is delivered, it is best to arrange to collect your parcel from the depot, or have the parcel redirected to the address of someone you trust. Be smart when disposing of packaging, so as not to advertise the fact you have bought a new TV, computer, or other expensive goods. Report any suspicious behaviour to police.

Three new directors have been appointed to the board of the Wellington Regional Economic Development Agency (WREDA). Wellington Mayor Justin Lester and Greater Wellington Regional Council Chair Chris Laidlaw, whose councils are the joint shareholders of WREDA, have welcomed the appointments of Tracey Bridges, Wayne Mulligan and Kylie Archer. “I know Tracey, Wayne and Kylie well – and I know they’ll bring first-rate business, events and community acumen to the board table,” Mayor Justin Lester says. Chris Laidlaw adds: “It gives me great confidence to see the talent and experience these three new board members will bring

to WREDA. Leaders in their own fields, Kylie, Wayne and Tracey have a solid mix of experience in many business, technology innovation and cultural disciplines. WREDA is in good hands going into 2018.” Tracey has also been appointed to the board of the Wellington Regional Stadium Trust. The new appointments bring the WREDA board to eight. The remaining directors are Peter Biggs, CEO of a number of advertising agencies; Thomas Pippos, national chief executive of Deloitte; Grant Guilford, vice chancellor of Victoria University; Dave Gibson, CEO of the NZ Film Commission, and Matt Clarke, senior executive of Wellington International Airport.
