Woman's 111 call: They've stolen my marijuana plants

12:55PM Friday March 09, 2007

 

A woman who called Napier police this morning to report a burglary became so upset she broke down in tears - although the police communications officer who took the initial call couldn't stop smiling.


The call left senior sergeant Mal Lochrie shaking his head as he explained that the woman had called to report the theft of three marijuana plants which she had growing in pots outside.

She also bitterly complained that it was the fourth year in a row someone had sneaked on to her Ahuriri property and made off with her marijuana plants.

Mr Lochrie said the woman told the communications operator she was a good person and was sick and tired of "low-lifes" stealing her things.

"The community constable is going around to see her later to have a bit of a chat," Mr Lochrie said.
