Etching vandals caught UPPER HUTT DISTRICT COURT Upper Hutt police have caught two vandals partly responsible for etching windows on Main St last week. Area commander Inspector Mike Hill says the offenders were caught on CCTV cameras, with the help of local shopkeepers. We have apprehended two boys, 13 and 15, from Upper Hutt, who are responsible for some of the etching recently, including the library last night [May 24]. Mr Hill says minors cannot be prosecuted through the criminal justice system, but they will be punished. We are looking for the offenders to pay for the damage caused, regardless of age. While those under 14 are not part of the youth justice system, we still have family meetings to hold them accountable as well. Police are very aware of the strong feelings in the community against those who are tagging and etching windows, he says. The impacts of crime are seen by the public, but often the impacts of policing are not. We will catch up with offenders. We are working with shopkeepers to work on window protection. Mr Hill says further arrests are likely. There are a couple of adults who were seen doing it who we are working to catch this week. If you have seen any vandalism in Upper Hutt, contact police on 527 2300 or ring Crime Stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Drug bust Police found a man locked in his room with a machete, a baseball bat, a small knife and three pipes for using drugs. Mathew James Bevan, 46, pleaded guilty last week to pos- session of equipment for the con- sumption of drugs. Prosecuting Sergeant Neill Ford said police were called to Bevan s home at 8pm on May 21 on reports of domestic abuse. When police arrived at the address they found the doors open and the lights on. Mr Ford said they began search- ing the house, soon after. The defendant had barricaded himself in his room with a machete, a small knife and a base- ball bat. The defendant told police if you want me come and get me . Police found two pipes for smok- ing methamphetamine and one for cannabis, Mr Ford said. When spoken to, the defendant admitted the facts as outlined and gave an explanation that he had used them for drug use. Defence counsel Mike Sceats said they were old pipes that Bevan no longer used. Judge Chris Tuohy said Bevan should not be giving money to drug dealers. If you care about yourself and your five children, don t get involved with this. Bevan was convicted and fined $280. The court also ordered the destruction of the equipment. Used mum's card An unemployed man used his mother s eftpos card to get money from her bank account 29 times, the court was told last week. Samuel Cook admitted 29 charges of taking a credit card for pecuniary advan- tage, assaulting a female, and burglary. Judge Chris Tuohy said the crimes were related to several different incidents. On the assault charge he said, You punched your partner in the face and dragged her by the hair. On the burglary charge, He used a bat to break into Rimutaka Tavern and stole alcohol. Cook also repeatedly stole his mother s eftpos card and withdrew cash from an ATM during a period of four months, Judge Tuohy said. You milked her account of nearly $6500. Your family are sad and bewildered at how you could do this. Judge Tuohy said he believed Cook s drug problems were more serious than he would admit. I strongly suspect that the cash withdrawals you said were going on bills, were going on drugs. Unless you change your attitude, I think you will spend your life involved with criminal law. Defence counsel Stephen Iorns said Cook admitted the facts and was happy to be leaving out the front door rather than the back . He was sentenced to 350 hours com- munity work, 12 months intensive super- vision with drug and alcohol assessments, and ordered to pay $927 reparation to the Rimutaka Tavern and $6490 to his parents. 'Samaritan' act A woman who offered to let a stranger stay at her house so he would not have to spend a week in jail was a good samaritan , Judge Chris Tuohy said. Abraham Amaru was in custody, without plea, for several charges including aggravated assault and assault with intent to injure. Judge Tuohy said Amaru was struggling to find a suitable bail address with family and might have to spend another week in jail. I would not like to see him in jail for another week and lose his job, he said. Former solvent addict Rebecca Voice stood up in court and said she would like to help him as part of her journey to recovery. I am quite willing to take that man into my home rather than see him locked up. I d like to help this man, she said. Judge Tuohy said the man could be bailed to her address as a temporary resort. There are good samaritans in the world. Amaru was remanded on bail until June 15.
