Good news!

The Team from New Zealand Police

Thanks to the brave and quick actions of these members of the public (pictured centre and centre right) – an offender who was trying to make a getaway after stealing money from a Henderson dairy was stopped and swiftly arrested. 👏

Earlier this month, one of the owners of the store was working behind the counter when a man entered the store and demanded money.

He walked behind the counter to the cash register and took a large sum of money, but the owner very quickly managed to activate the anti-theft smoke canon and the offender fled the shop.

Seeing what happened, the members of the public chased the offender and caught him, holding him until Police arrived soon afterwards.

He was then arrested and taken into custody.

A 40-year-old man has been charged with theft and was due to appear in the Waitakere District Court last week.

The money taken was returned to the dairy owners (pictured on the left), who were very grateful to those who stepped in to help.

A great result and example of people going above and beyond to look out for people in their local community.

1866: The road to Hokitika

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

It was March 23, 1866, and The Press was highly enthusiastic about the opening of a route to the West Coast.

“When we recall what the West Coast was only little more than a year ago, and the great length of the journey, rarely of less than ten days, and that over the most impracticable country, … View more
It was March 23, 1866, and The Press was highly enthusiastic about the opening of a route to the West Coast.

“When we recall what the West Coast was only little more than a year ago, and the great length of the journey, rarely of less than ten days, and that over the most impracticable country, it does seem a feat of which Canterbury, and the present Government of Canterbury, may be somewhat proud, that at this moment we can take our places in a comfortable four-horse coach, and be landed in Hokitika on the evening of the second day, having slept at a tolerably comfortable hotel one night on the road."

Read the full story here. It's part of THE PRESS 160 YEARS - a series marking the launch of The Press newspaper in Christchurch on May 25, 1861. Between now and the anniversary, The Press will revisit stories from every year of publication.
